Sam Fender unveils cover of 'Winter Song'

Following on from the release of his stunning standalone single 'Hold Out' earlier this year, Sam Fender has now returned to unveil a very special cover.

The new rendition of the 1970s folk track 'Winter Song', originally by Alan Hull and Lindisfarne, has been released to aid awareness of homelessness in the UK, and comes accompanied by a new video produced in collaboration with People of The Streets (POTS), a social enterprise that seeks to meet the less tangible needs of people experiencing homelessness.

Speaking about the new offering, Sam said, “I wanted to do a Christmas song, and wanted it to be close to my home and my heart. For me, the words are more relevant this year than ever. Christmas won’t be the same for a lot of people this year, and that’s why I picked Winter Song. Alan Hull truly was one of the most fantastic and underrated writers of his time. Geordie legend.

“I hope I’ve done it justice, I’m really proud of it.”

In tandem with the POTS collaboration, Sam is also selling The Big Issue via his official webstore at www.samfender.com – with vendors unable to work due to COVID restrictions, has partnered with The Big Issue will all profits going straight back to the magazine to be split between them and the vendors.
