Sam Fender Shares New Album Taster, ‘Aye’
The track also features on the rising star’s upcoming album, ‘Seventeen Going Under’
Sam Fender has shared his latest song, “Aye” and you can check it out below. The new offering is the second preview of the North Shields artist’s upcoming album Seventeen Going Under, which is set for release on October 8.
Fender said of his new track, “’Aye’ is about the polarity between the left and the right wing, and how that leaves working class people displaced with a lack of political identity, playing into the hands of the 1 per cent.”
He added: “It’s also a rant about my disdain for the greedy tax dodging billionaires of the world.”
Fender recently told NME that he feels his forthcoming new album is “leagues ahead” of his 2019 debut Hypersonic Missiles.
“As a record I think this one is leagues ahead [of Hypersonic Missiles],” Fender said. “I’m more proud of this than anything I’ve ever done. It’s probably the best thing I’ve done in my life.
“I just hope people love it as much as I do. With the first album, a lot of those songs were written when I was 19, so I was over half of it [by the time it was released]. Whereas this one is where I’m at now.”
