Following the huge success of his global smash hit This City and recent project Homework, Sam Fischer has teamed up with Demi Lovato to announce his official new single What Other People Say released today through RCA Records.
LISTEN/EMBED: WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
Written by Sam before his single This City became a hit, it was a song he always knew would be a duet and was blown away when Demi Lovato became the perfect person to accompany him on vocals. Written about a feeling of being alone and not wanting to let people down, the pairing takes two different lives and perspectives and unites them in one message of human experience, emotion and togetherness, so they are alone with one another in the song. It is a truly special track with a powerful, moving and relatable chorus and is the next official single release for Sam since This City.
Sam says; “What Other People Say is a confession, realising how far away you can get from who you are in an effort to be liked. It’s about the pressures of society and how getting caught up with the wrong things can change you.”
Demi says; “This song is a reflection on what it’s like to lose who you truly are in an effort to please other people and society. It’s why I wanted to make this song with Sam – ultimately it’s about two humans coming together to connect and find solutions to their problems.”
Alongside the announcement of the single, Sam Fischer has also shared that he has been chosen as YouTube’s first ‘Artist on the Rise’ for 2021, which follows previous winners Mabel, Aitch, Freya Ridings, Mahalia, Beabadoobee and Celeste.
Always wearing his heart on his sleeve and with sincerity in both his lyrics and conversations, Sam Fischer released his project Homework last year, which is a cathartic body of work, acknowledging the moments in life that Sam has struggled to deal with and how these situations have changed him for the better.
GRAMMY-nominated singer Demi Lovato first broke out in 2008 with the Disney Channel film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam in 2010. Also in 2008, she released her debut studio album Don’t Forget. What followed was what continues to be a hit musical career, with top selling and acclaimed hit records and world tours.
