British singer songwriter Sam Tompkins releases his long awaited full cover of ‘Talking To The Moon’. The track will be released as a special edition 7” vinyl along with a new picture disc vinyl format of Sam’s highly anticipated debut album ‘hi my name is insecure’. Pre-order HERE

‘Talking To The Moon’ is where it all really began for Sam; in the three years since that simple cover in his bedroom (10.8m views) first dropped, Tompkins has gone on to sell out Hammersmith Apollo, perform on stage with his now close friend Justin Bieber, support The Kid LAROI in a sold out European tour, as well as sell out a US tour. The cover has gained multiple viral moments, including a huge sample from JNR Choi, and all content relating to the song accumulating a staggering 47 million views across Sam’s Instagram and Tiktok.

Speaking on the track Sam says, “A few years ago I covered this amazing song, I never expected it would change my life the way it did. I used to think that I couldn’t claim any pride in a song that wasn’t mine but since reposting my original video a year ago everyone around me has been telling me to release the full version, especially my Dad, who would remind me that some of the world’s best songs are covers. This song is so wonderfully written by Bruno and I’m so grateful for that. Thank you to all the kind strangers on the internet for reminding me of who and what I am. I appreciate you all. My version of ‘Talking To The Moon” is out Friday and I’m super excited to finally release it into the world. I can’t wait for you to finally have it.”

‘hi, my name is insecure’, out 26th July via Island Records, has been years in the making as Sam built his dream body of work, incorporating tracks which are already fan favourites alongside exciting new material. The album includes hit tracks ‘someone else’, ‘time will fly’, ‘see me’, ‘lose it all’, ‘phones in heaven’, ‘numb’ and his most recently released single from the album, ‘dead to me’.

Sam recently announced a massive UK and European tour, which will see him perform in Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham, Brighton, Bournemouth, Madrid, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Prague, Hamburg, Warsaw, Munich and Amsterdam throughout November and December this year.
