Singer songwriter Sam Fender shares new single, ‘That Sound’, which is lifted from his forthcoming debut EP ‘Dead Boys’.
A recent live favourite throughout the festival season, ‘That Sound‘ features on the six track EP available for download, on limited edition vinyl and cassette on November 20 via Polydor Records.
Named as one of the BBC’s Sound of 2018 artists to watch, the North Shields musician’s lyrics tackle hard-hitting subjects of social importance and generational significance, which are broadly drawn from his experiences growing up on Tyneside.
The content is significant, and wrapped in rousing, propulsive, arena-sized anthems.

Describing the song, Sam explains, “Simply put, ‘That Sound’ is a celebration of music, but it’s also a not-so-subtle middle finger to the naysayers that tend to rear their heads as soon as things start to work out for you, especially back at home.
“Music was always ever present when I was growing up, and it’s continued to be the most important and intrinsic part of me. It kept me from going off the rails as a kid and it gave me rare purpose and self-confidence that I couldn’t find from anything else.
“This song talks loosely about how susceptible you can become to negativity and jealousy, even when you’re at your happiest and most confident. It’s about finding strength to ignore it all, and keep doing your own thing.”
