HYPERSONIC MISSILES SET FOR RELEASE ON RELEASED SEPTEMBER 13
29 AUGUST 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Sam Fender is very pleased to share the video for his new single "Will We Talk?". Shot and directed by Vincent Haycock (the acclaimed visual director for Sam’s previous singles Dead Boys and Hypersonic Missiles) in Marseille, it’s the final single to be lifted from the record ahead of its release.

Sam has also shared an incredible stripped back performance of "Will We Talk?", recorded live in Capitol Studios. Listen here
The debut album Hypersonic Missiles is released on the 13th September through Polydor Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. It was written, recorded and produced at Fender’s own self-built warehouse studio in North Shields, and recorded alongside long-standing friend and producer, Bramwell Bronte.
Sam Fender is a rare talent. A 25-year-old musician from the North who plays every gig as though it might well be his last, armed with this huge, cavernous vocal, guitar strapped on (a Fender, obviously), and feulled by that seemingly old-school belief that great guitar music still has the power to change lives and influence people.
There’s a loose thread that has run through all of Sam’s songs to date and that’s in the focus of his lyrics. Observational, questioning and socially engaged, Sam has an innate gift for simplifying matters of the newsworthy and topical. “I have no answers, only questions” he clarifies on the album’s title track, but there’s a canny simplicity here that seems to be touching and speaking plainly to people in their hundreds of thousands. Those words reflect conversations occurring right across the globe, amongst friends in cafes, pubs, and out on the terraces.
Pre-order the album HERE for download, CD, cassette, mini-disc, limited edition black and white vinyl, and to pre-save on streaming platforms. Head over to Sam’s online store for the full list of upcoming live dates, exclusive merch and limited-edition album bundles.
