Newcastle indie rock musician Sam Fender has premiered the video for his latest single "Spit Of You" starring British actor Stephen Graham (This Is England, Line Of Duty).
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from his upcoming second studio album 'Seventeen Going Under', out this Friday, October 8th through Interscope Records. Pre-order your copy here.
About the video, Sam says:“Stephen Graham is genuinely one of the best actors this country has ever seen, and such a lovely bloke. I’m fucking so buzzing about it, it’s so beast! I was out of my comfort zone but it was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. Thanks so much to Phil Barantini (Director) for making this beauty come to life.”
Of the song Sam said: “This is one of my favourite songs on the new record, it’s a song about boys and their dads. It’s based around my own relationship with my old man, and how we both struggle as blokes to communicate the way we feel to each other without it becoming a stand off. It’s about how the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as I get further in to my twenties i see so much of myself in him, especially when it comes to being stubborn. The second half of the song talks about seeing him with my grandma when she passed away, and how I saw him as a son, and how that moment reminded me to make the most of my time with him. If anything, it is a declaration of love for him."
