LISTEN/EMBED: THIS CITY REMIX
Sam Fischer has announced a further version of his global smash hit This City with a second remix featuring Kane Brown, which is part of his These Cities Project.
Beginning as a TikTok sensation and quickly cementing itself in hearts and heads around the world, the emotive and heartfelt This City now stands at over 180 million worldwide streams, 1 million worldwide sales and over 7 million video views. It has been certified Silver in the UK with a Top 20 chart position, which steadily climbed over 18 weeks, receiving radio support from Radio 1, Radio 2 (B List), Capital, Virgin and Bauer alongside TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden.
An already loved and celebrated track, it is outshining itself with a new series of duets, which launched first with award-winning artist Anne-Marie and has been reworked again to feature renowned American country singer songwriter Kane Brown. In 2016, Kane released his Double Platinum certified self-titled debut album featuring the hits ‘What Ifs’ and ‘Heaven’. This RCA Nashville entertainer became the first artist to have simultaneous numbers ones on all five main Billboard country charts. His second album, the Platinum certified ‘Experiment’ became his first number one album on the Billboard 200 albums chart when it debuted in 2018.
Speaking of the collaboration, Kane says; “Sam is an amazing artist, and I was already a huge fan of him and the song. When he asked me to be on it, it was absolutely, yes. I love our version and I can’t wait for the fans to hear it.”
Discussing the collection of collaborations, Sam says;
“The ‘These Cities Project’ is my way of thanking everyone for giving me the life I have now through their love and support of the song. I wanted to bring together artists from different cities across the world who I love and have them put their own experience/perspective into the second verse. I’ve received so many incredible messages about what This City means to people and so it’s my hope that with each version, you’ll be able to see and feel yourself in them.”
Australian born Sam Fischer first introduced himself with his Not A Hobby EP and has garnered incredible attention through his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Touring North America with his friend Lewis Capaldi, he wowed crowds with his buoyant personality and pure love and talent for song-writing. Now based in LA, he not only has received acclaim for his own work, but he continues to solidify his spot as one of the hottest current writers, having worked with global pop superstars including Ciara, Louis Tomlinson, Jessie J and many more.
However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Sam, who endured his own heartache to achieve his dreams. With the promise of a recording contract in the bag, he left his parents and new wife behind in Australia and set off to LA only for the deal to be pulled away. After months of couch-surfing and struggling to keep his marriage alive across two continents, he finally and deservedly received his break and This City is just the amazing start of an exciting new chapter in Sam’s career.
