September 1, 2023 – Today, pop singer-songwriter Sam Fischer reveals his brand new, sweeping single, “Afterglow,” out now via Sony Music UK/RCA Records.
Filled with bright vocal melodies and euphoric reverbs, “Afterglow” is one of Sam’s most uplifting songs to date. Written after a period of writer’s block, the lyrics explore the theme of finding joy through clarity and shaking off the worries in life that can often weigh people down. Accompanying the single is its music video, directed by Joe Wood, which follows Sam as he has an otherworldly encounter.
Speaking about the release, Sam says: “I wrote ‘Afterglow’ at a time when I felt totally burnt out on writing sessions, just creatively spent. It was a total Hail Mary song that started with me asking myself, ‘What would Chris Martin do,’ which I recommend for whenever you feel like you’re running on empty. It’s that euphoria you feel when everything clicks, that explosion of radical self-love, and you finally feel what you’ve been waiting for your whole life. I want the world to ‘let go’ of all the BS that keeps you down when they hear ‘Afterglow.’”
With more than a billion streams to his name, earlier this year, Sam duetted with Meghan Trainor for their hit track “Alright,” which surpassed 1.5 million worldwide streams within its first week of release in June. He also paired this with a series of intimate live shows across the UK and Europe as part of his Something To Hold Onto Tour, which saw Sam return to his acoustic roots and showcase new music from his upcoming album due out later this year.
About Sam Fischer

However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Sam, who endured his own heartache to achieve his dreams.
