Although things are only just beginning for the young, 22-year-old Sam Wilder, he is certainly showing wisdom and grandeur far beyond his years with this beautiful new single.
From the very start, ‘Vanity’ looks to pull on our emotions as he leads us through a warm and inviting ballad that sees him channel the aesthetic of Sam Smith, Tom Chaplin and Josh Groban. His stellar voice anchors the smooth and uplifting texture of the record, culminating in a powerful and truly enticing new release.
Adding about the song, he said, “‘Vanity’ is a song about feeling used and manipulated by the people who are supposed to lift you up and keep you safe.”
‘Vanity’ follows up the previously shared singles ‘House’ and ‘Just September’, adding yet another glorious layer to his growing direction.
