In other news, Fender recently teamed up with Noah Kahan on a collaborative new single, ‘Homesick’. The US singer-songwriter recently teased a joint song with a mystery artist, with many fans correctly guessing that Fender was singing on it. Later, the ‘Seventeen Going Under’ star confirmed the collab on social media.
Fender also recently shared a soulful new song called ‘Iris’, taken from the soundtrack to the film Jackdaw.
It was the first new material from Fender following on his 2021 second album ‘Seventeen Going Under‘ – named as NME‘s Album Of The Year.
Fans have been awaiting news of Fender’s third album after he celebrated his Newcastle shows by offering pre-orders of a special edition of the record to fans.
Speaking to NME about what to expect from his third album back in 2022, Fender described the new music as sounding “very pretty” with a strong “singer-songwriter” vibe. Despite graduating to stadiums and festival headline slots, Fender said that he wasn’t planning on writing music purely to fill huge venues.
“If I try and force myself to write stadium songs, we could end up fucking it I think,” he admitted. “Instead, I want to write about the stories that I have and the place that I’m mentally at in my life at this point. And I’ve had a lot to write about.”
