It’s the second track to receive the remix treatment for Fender, following a reworking of his previous single "Hypersonic Missiles" by fellow Geordie artist, Patrick Topping.
Sam Fender’s debut album Hypersonic Missiles is released on the 13th September through Polydor Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.

Sam’s original recording of ‘Will We Talk?’ is a heady blast of high-octane, melody-packed, smash’n’grab rock’n’roll that launches from the traps at full pelt and doesn’t relent until the guitars and a string-section subside three minutes later. It’s quickly become a signature tune for fans at his live shows and heralds another anthem to add to Sam’s sharp slew of them.
Hypersonic Missiles will be Sam’s debut album. 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.
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 exclusive merch and limited-edition album bundles.
Sam Fender is a rare talent. A 25-year-old working-class 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 fuelled 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. Frustrations. Misunderstandings. Despair.
All announced live dates are listed below including his first shows in Japan next week. Sam then tours the UK at the end of the year including four sold-out shows at Newcastle Academy, and two at Brixton Academy. See full tour itinerary HERE.
