Sam Tompkins is back with “Die For Someone“, the second installment from his highly anticipated debut album. The new track follows the first single from this new chapter, “Lose It All”, released at the end of 2022 and marks a more uptempo sound from the emotional pop artist. Listen to it now below.
Energetic and emotionally raw, the delivery of “Die For Someone” is atmospheric yet resonant, proving Sam can thrive in whatever genre he turns his hand to. Sam says of the song, “You know that feeling where you’re just like: I kinda wanna fall in love but I’m also scared to do it because of what happened last time? Die For Someone is the soundtrack to that feeling.”
Earmarked by tastemakers from Jack Saunders and Mollie King on BBC Radio 1 to Vogue, Wonderland, The Line of Best Fit, and Hypebeast, Sam has delivered on the excitement surrounding him, and is cementing his reputation as one of the fastest rising male British artists globally. With over 130 million global streams, 3 million monthly Spotify listeners and a literal army of followers moving alongside him, he crashed into the Top 10 of the UK album charts with EP ‘who do you pray to’ in 2022. Selling out every venue he puts his name against, his live prowess stretches across Europe.
With a rise that is testament to Sam’s likable perseverance and ever-evolving sound, his lyrics are as relatable as his success story is inspirational. Quickly becoming the Brit of choice for US stars to collaborate with: Nicki Minaj sampled his song, ‘Whole’ on her single ‘Love In The Way’ and JNR Choi’s ‘To The Moon’ featured Sam’s vocals and made incredible waves across the music industry, boasting 215 million global streams and peaking at #1 on Spotify’s Viral Hits chart. Justin Bieber is a major champion and friend of Sam’s and invited him on stage to perform with him on his EU Tour. Elton John and Shawn Mendes are admirers, Fred Again, Sam Smith, Drake and Bebe Rexha have co-signed his work, while closer to home, JayKae jumped onstage with Sam in 2021, and renowned UK artists Krept & Konan, Chip and Clean Bandit are also fans.
