Sam Fender opened the Virgin Money Unity Arena this Tuesday (11 August), where he debuted brand new music.
The North Shields singer-songwriter played the first of two shows at Newcastle's Gosforth Park - becoming the first act to play the UK's first ever socially distanced venue.
Performing favourites from his Hypersonic Missiles album including its title track, Play God, Dead Boys and The Borders, Fender also treated fans to a taste of his second record.
Watch him open his set with his infectious single, Will We Talk?, in our video above.
Fender also treated the crowd to three new tracks, two of which are believed to be called 17 Going Under and The Kitchen.
See him play the latter in our video:
According to fans, one of Fender's emotional new tracks could be entitled Use, which you can see a snippet of below:
It seems the actual bridge of Use is the repeated phrase— Sam Fender Updates (@FenderUpdates) August 11, 2020
“Oh you lost brother?” and then the third phrase being
“Are you lost brother?”
not “you lost her” or “lost lover” which a lot of lyric sites have reported it being. pic.twitter.com/LpCDrsToma
