UK rocker Sam Fender has treated fans with another of his forthcoming sophomore album, Seventeen Going Under, with the release of Get You Down. The track arrives alongside an official visual, comprised of footage from Fender's festival performances.

The introspective release puts Fender's evocative and captivating lyricism on full display, as he tackles themes of self-esteem and the impact our own insecurities can have on those around us. With soaring, mesmerising vocals, the track is built atop shimmering rock sonics, and is another shining offering from Fender's soon to be released sophomore record.

Speaking of the track, the musician shares: “The whole record is about growing up and the self-esteem issues that you carry into your adult life, this song in particular is about how insecurity has affected my relationships. Definitely one of the more personal ones”

Fender's sophomore record is set to take a more intense and personal approach to songwriting when compared with his debut, Hypersonic Missiles. Transforming his own life experiences into compositional works of art, Seventeen Going Under will tell a coming-of-age tale, playing out across eleven tracks. Fender recorded the album in his hometown, once again teaming up with long-time collaborator, producer Bramwell Bronte.

Speaking about the record, Fender shares: "This album is a coming-of-age story. It’s about growing up. It’s a celebration of life after hardship, and it’s a celebration of surviving.” The Brit Award winners debut album debuted at number 1 in the UK album chart, and took the musician on a world-wide tour.

Seventeen Going Under is out October 8.
