Meanwhile, Sam Fender is due to play a string of intimate shows this December in partnership with UK indie record stores. Tickets for these performances have now sold out.

In a four-star review of the imminent ‘Seventeen Going Under’, NME wrote: “[The album] sees Fender realise that it can kick back a lot harder, and he counts every blow and bruise. But he seems to have found that time passes and that most wounds – even the deepest – will eventually heal, if he can allow them to.”

Yesterday (October 6) Fender shared the poignant video for his latest single ‘Spit Of You’, which stars actor Stephen Graham.
