Representing the finest in current British talent, Sam Tompkins unveils his latest single, entitled ‘Die For Someone’.
Serving as a taster to Tompkins’ forthcoming debut album, the anthemic song showcases a sound that is refreshingly energising and emotionally raw in tone.
“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.”
As one of the UK’s newest pop stars, Tompkins has received support from the likes of Hypebeast, BBC Radio 1, Notion, Wonderland, Clash, 1883 and Vogue magazines, while also commanding more than three million listeners on Spotify alone.
Undeniably one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the UK recently, Sam Tompkins unveils emotive visuals for his new single ‘My Brother’.
“‘My Brother’ is really special to me. I love it so much. The origin of it is actually a sad but lovely story. When I was about 18, we lost our Nana and at the funeral we had to read the eulogy. I got about 6 words in before being in floods of tears, my brother read the rest and was so strong. Flash forward to last year when my Papa (Grandpa) passed away and I decided to do the eulogy. Sadly because of covid my brother couldn’t make it as he was working away in Canada. This time I got the whole way through it and I remember getting the text from my brother who watched it through a live stream that I smashed it and I felt so proud because the only way I was able to do it was knowing I was the exact age my brother had stepped up and been brave 5 years prior.”
With praise from the likes of MTV, Clash, BBC and Notion, as well as airplay from BBC Radio 1 and features on Spotify editorial playlists, 2022 could well be the year that Britain unveils it’s next big superstar to the world.

Track of the week. Sam Tompkins is shaping up to become one of the UK’s largest musical exports over the coming months.
With millions of streams across platforms, a sold-out tour and a huge online fanbase (thanks to his series of viral covers), it seems inevitable that the Brighton-raised vocalist will deservedly hit the global mainstream.
‘Bloodline’ is a reminder that no matter how far our loved ones go, they are always still with us wherever we go.

Championed by the likes of by Elton John, Bastille and Justin Bieber, singer-songwriter Sam Tompkins returns today with new single ‘(w)hole’.
This emotionally charged piece reminds us that sometimes we all need to find that human connection to bring us out of an ‘ocean sized hole’.
“I think ‘(w)hole’ is sort of a realisation of knowing that not every problem in the world can be fixed by one person. If there is meaning or purpose to this life, it has to come from being and working alongside one another.”
“‘Kings’ is a song about brotherhood. It’s about telling the men in your life that you love them, care for them and will always do so. I often think that men don’t fully understand the power that showing emotion has, so this record is hopefully something that sparks a chain reaction in boys and men of all ages…”
