Sam Fender is pleased to share ‘The Borders’, the final song to be dropped ahead of his debut album release, and arguably his most hard-hitting in a record that’s littered with them. “Hypersonic Missiles” is released on the 13th September through Polydor Records.
As has been well-documented, Sam Fender is a British musician who writes cannily about what he sees and has seen around him.
The Borders, Sam’s personal favourite on the record, is a chest-punching story that looks a little closer to home. At once deeply personal, traumatic even, Sam tells a story of two boys growing up together and then going their separate ways. Memories inferred but not directly addressed. It’s a storming tune with a powerful story, as so many of Sam’s songs are.
Hypersonic Missilesis 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.
