SAM FENDER Shares Final Track, “Borders,” Ahead of Debut Album Release

Sam Fender is pleased to share “The Borders,” the final song to be dropped ahead of his debut album, Hypersonic Missiles, and arguably his most hard-hitting in a record that’s littered with them. As has been well-documented, the UK’s Fender writes cannily about what he sees and has seen around him. Rolling Stone recently said “The 25-year-old’s uncannily mature songs tackle weighty topics without flinching.” “The Borders,” Sam’s personal favorite on the LP, is a chest-punching story that looks a little closer to home. At once deeply personal and traumatic, 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.
