Sam Fender has announced a headline UK tour for this spring.
After a busy 2018 of hype and buzz, the newly announced BRITs Critics’ Choice winner is also re-releasing 2017’s ‘Play God’, which you can check out below.
The song was originally released independently to “ensure any new fans he made had something to hear online when discovering Sam live”.
Sam explains: “‘Play God’ is set in alternate dystopian reality that shares similarities with our own world,” which sort of ignores the fact we’re clearly living in our own dystopian reality already, but we’ll let that slide, Dear Reader.
“I wrote it a couple of years ago when there were a lot of big changes happening in both the UK and the States [*Brexit-Trump-face* – Ed], I had just entered my twenties, I was ancxious about the future of the world and its leaders, and it didn’t help that I’d just read George Orwell’s 1984 at the time. As you can imagine, I was pretty paranoid.”
As well as the track, Sam has announced six new headline dates for May.
Kicking off at Manchester’s Ritz, he’ll then go on to play Glasgow, London, Birmingham, Exeter and Bristol.
Tickets for the new shows go on general sale this coming Friday, 18th January, at 9am. You can read the dates in full below.
