Hotly tipped newcomer Sam Fender returns with an incredibly moving new track ‘Leave Fast’. Recorded in a self-built studio in North Shields, it has a wonderfully organic feel with lyrics pulled directly from the drab location in which they were created. Its subject matter way be claustrophobic, but Sam breathes real life into this melancholic cut and creates a sense of space.

Its video, shot on 16mm film, shows Sam’s surrounding in stark reality, documenting the desperation created by small town suburbia. Produced by Bramwell Bronte, this track has a dense emotive weight and emphasises the importance of escape.

Sam has been slowly building momentum following the release of rapturous ‘Friday Fighting’ and the mammoth ‘Play God’. Now he readies himself for a packed summer of festival appearances and adds another standout moment in this latest single.
