In December, Sam Fender told NME he was going to head into the studio to start work on album three. “When I say I’m going to take some time out, I’m going to sit in a studio. That’s time out for us, because I find it really cathartic and peaceful. It’s a good place for us to chill, you know?”
He’s also announced details of a London gig at Finsbury Park for summer 2022 with support from Fontaines D.C., Declan McKenna, Beabadoobee and Goat Girl.
