Sam Fender shares final track ‘The Borders’ ahead of debut album release


~ The Borders ~



Sam Fender shares ‘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 Missiles’ is 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.
