June 2, 2023 – Australian born singer-songwriter Sam Fischer duets with global superstar Meghan Trainor for his latest release “Alright,” out now via Sony Music UK/RCA Records. Listen here.
The man behind the hit tracks “This City” and “What Other People Say” feat. Demi Lovato originally wrote the track with Meghan more than four years ago, but now it is finally seeing the light of day. The single sees Sam step away from the guitar and onto the dancefloor with catchy drum beats and beautiful vocal harmonies with Meghan. Lyrically, the song is all about manifesting positivity, and it’s delivered with an optimistic assurance that you can’t help but smile at.
Sam said: “I wrote the chorus of ‘Alright’ in the shower in 2018 while I was having an anxiety attack. I calmed myself down by saying ‘I’m gonna be alright’ repeatedly – then went to the studio and smashed out the song! Meghan Trainor is one of the most talented humans I’ve worked with and on top of that, we’ve been great mates for years. She heard me play the track and wanted to jump on it – obviously I said, ‘hell yeah’ and four years later the time has finally come to unleash this beautiful beast on the world.”
Meghan said: “I first heard this song when Sam sang it on tour opening for Lewis Capaldi and I texted him from the audience how much I loved it and wanted to be a part of it! Sam is a brilliant writer with one of my favorite voices ever. On top of that, no one makes me laugh harder than him. He’s a great person and friend and he deserves the world! I am so honored to finally have duet with this legend.”
Sam has more than a billion streams to his name. He is currently performing live across the UK and Europe as part of his Something To Hold Onto Tour. The series of intimate shows see Sam going back to his roots with acoustic performances showcasing new music from his highly anticipated upcoming album.
