Sam Fender joins forces with Bruce Springsteen for charity single

Sam Fender has teamed up with Bruce Springsteen to record a charity single.

The 28-year-old singer has joined forces with the ‘Born in the U.S.A.’ hitmaker to record a charity song for the Teenage Cancer Trust and its sister organisation Teenage Cancer America.

Sam – who has also teamed up with Sting and Mark Knopfler to record the superstar song – said: “Sting occasionally FaceTimes us, weirdly I always end up being in the bath.

“We were in the studio the other day. I did a charity thing with him and Mark Knopfler.”

Sam felt nervous about working with some of his heroes, including Mark, who starred in Dire Straits.

The ‘Seventeen Going Under’ hitmaker can barely believe that he’s working with so many big-name artists.

He told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “I just did some guitar stuff, which was the most f****** nerve-wracking thing ever, going in to do a guitar take on a Mark Knopfler song, he’s one of the best guitarists ever.

“Springsteen’s on it as well. There’s a million people. All of the legends and then me, a stupid Geordie.”

Sam has enjoyed a meteoric rise over recent years, and has admitted to being disconnected from the music scene in his home city.

He shared: “I’m quite out of touch, to be honest. When I go home, I tend to stay in the house, because I can’t really go anywhere in Newcastle now without getting f****** obliterated.”

Despite this, Sam never feels short of inspiration or ideas for new music.

He added: “I wasn’t living that life when I was writing ‘Seventeen Going Under’. That whole album was written when I was living in a nice flat and had signed a record deal.”
