Sam Fender shares latest single ‘Saturday’, which sits at the heart of his debut album Hypersonic Missiles.
It’s an ode to the misery of an excruciatingly slow working week, a bank account that remains resolutely empty, a landlord not returning calls on a problematic flat, and the minor solace of the weekend forever just out of reach. It’s a typically sobering, wholly relatable lyrical lament that Sam has quickly become renowned for telling.
Sam describes ‘Saturday’ as “An anthem for the everyman about living for the weekend and sticking two fingers up to zero hours contracts”

‘Saturday’ is lifted from Sam’s recent #1 selling critically acclaimed debut album, Hypersonic Missiles. Since release, the album has become both the second fastest selling UK debut of the year, and the fastest selling vinyl LP by a debuting artist since the Official Charts began.
2019 has been a year that Sam Fender won’t want to end; starting as the BRITs Critics’ Choice winner, selling out shows across the globe, and firing his heart-thumping guitar-led songs of grit and glory to the summit of the UK albums charts.
It’s been one of the year’s big success stories and a story that crucially shows no signs of abating with sold out-dates in bigger rooms dotted up and down the UK for the rest of the year, and into 2020 already too.
