“’Aye’ is about the polarity between the left and the right wing, and how that leaves working class people displaced with a lack of political identity, playing into the hands of the 1 per cent,” Fender said about his latest track.
He added: “It’s also a rant about my disdain for the greedy tax dodging billionaires of the world.” You can hear ‘Aye’ below.
“As a record I think this one is leagues ahead [of ‘Hypersonic Missiles’],” Fender said. “I’m more proud of this than anything I’ve ever done. It’s probably the best thing I’ve done in my life.
“I just hope people love it as much as I do. With the first album, a lot of those songs were written when I was 19, so I was over half of it [by the time it was released]. Whereas this one is where I’m at now.”
