See Sam Fender perform Play God here:
Play God was recorded in North Shields and produced by long-standing friend and collaborator Bramwell Bronte.
Sam says of the song: "Play God is set in an alternate dystopian reality that shares similarities with our own world. I wrote it a couple of years ago where there were a lot of big changes happening in both the UK and the States, I had just entered my twenties, I was anxious about the future of the world and its leaders, and it didn't help that I'd just read George Orwell's 1984 at the time. As you can imagine I was pretty paranoid!"
