Sam Fender has shared his new single, 'Hypersonic Missiles' and made his TV debut in the US.

It's the first new music he's released in 2019, following recent singles 'Play God' and 'Dead Boys'.

You can listen to the track below: 

Fender explained in a recent press release that the name of the song was inspired by a “newly developed Russian missile that travels at something like nine times the speed of sound.”

Describing the track as being “in many ways, an unorthodox love song”, he went on to say: “Its main focus is on the world around the narrator, who is a complete tinfoil hatter. They are convinced the world is on its last legs; they know that it is rife with injustice but feel completely helpless and lacking the necessary intelligence to change it while remaining hopelessly addicted to the fruits of consumerism...The lyrics reference bombings in Gaza, rising tensions in global politics, and “the corporate machine.”" 

He also made his TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week. Watch his performance of Hypersonic Missiles below:
