Sam Himself Releases Soaring New Single 'Golden Days'


The indie rocker Sam Himself just teased his upcoming second album by the release of new single 'Golden Days'.


Switzerland’s King of Tears aka New York’s leading Fondue Western baritone, Sam Himself, presents ‘Golden Days’, the second single in anticipation of his sophomore LP (due out early 2023). The song is representative of the artist's signature sound : full of energy and raw emotion free from pathos. Once again, the artist is proving his singing skills with an impressive dynamic range, soaring from intimate whispers to arena-sized falsetto howls as the singer turns regret into resilience, trades defeat for defiance, and leaves nothing on the table.


For ‘Golden Days’, Sam Himself reunited with his longtime producer and “Second Beatle”, Daniel Schlett (Iggy Pop; The War on Drugs), whose category-defying mix was mastered by none other than Greg Calbi (David Bowie; Bruce Springsteen). Sam’s musical “big brother” and studio collaborator of many years, bass player JD Werner (Ghostface Killah; Lee “Scratch” Perry), added to the musical composition, making it the first Sam Himself track co-authored by another artist – and an unbridled celebration of musical community to boot. Drummer Chris Egan (Blood Orange) did his part to blow the roof off the party, which was recorded at producer Schlett’s Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn, Sam’s creative homebase since the inception of his solo project.


The artist spoiled us with a music video filled with retro vibes showcasing his charms:
