Sam Johnson - Nineteen

Following on from his recent single Changes, singer-songwriter Sam Johnson has unveiled the wonderful Nineteen, taken from his forthcoming brand new EP ‘Are We There Yet?,’ out the 15th January 2021. Switching acoustic guitars for punctuated basslines and dazzling electronics, his latest effort is a no holds barred ode to growing up carefree, living your best life with no regret. Speaking about his new single, he said, "This one is a little more direct than the others. No hidden meaning here. It’s a very literal and biographical throwback to my fairly hedonistic last few years of school. My friends and I seemed far more focused on smoking high grade than we did on getting high grades and it certainly showed in our A level results. Still, they were some of the best days of my life, and this is a regret free ode to them. Interestingly though, I was born in 1995, and certainly not taking my final exams that year. The opening line ‘flash back to ninety-five’ can therefore be seen as a rare example on the EP where I gave myself artistic license to not be entirely honest, but instead allow some ambiguity because I liked the way the line sounded." Take a listen for yourselves below.
