Sam Tompkins is a fast-rising, Brighton-based singer-songwriter from London, England. Due to popular demand, he had to release his new sentimental single, “Time Will Fly,” along with a new music video containing flashback footage of the artist.
Sam Tompkins – “Time Will Fly” music video
The video charts Sam Tompkins’ rise from a 16-year-old busking on the streets of Brighton to cementing his reputation as one of the fastest-rising British male artists. The video has since received massive love worldwide, millions of views and comments, and even trended on TikTok.
‘Time Will Fly’ was originally recorded in L.A. and reworked to accompany Sam Tompkins’ recent Hammersmith Apollo headline show announcement video. The song received an outpouring of love from fans and artists alike including Raye, Timbaland, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, Berwyn, Justin Bieber, and many more.
“You were right, you did everything that you said you would do.”
“I can’t believe this song is out! ‘Time Will Fly’ came out of me back in November 2021 when I was in L.A. I had just had the most insane week, meeting, working, and collaborating with some of my all-time favorite artists, producers, and writers, and I just felt so proud of myself. The song was originally named ‘939 palm avenue,’ after the address of where my manager and I were staying. And it always meant so much to me, but it always felt like it wasn’t ‘Sam Tompkins’ enough.
Flash forward to the tour announcement a month or so ago (go grab a ticket if you haven’t already lol) and I felt I wanted to do something cool and different for it. I chose to remake this song and change a few lyrics. I made a really great video with the help of some insanely talented people on my team and then you guys BLEW THIS SONG UP. I mean, it’s crazy? Chris Brown reached out, Russ reached out, Logic reached out, G Eazy, Raye, the list literally goes on and on. I then decided to rewrite parts of the original ‘939’ version and press record and, well… this is what I came up with. I hope you love it!” – Sam Tompkins explained
With a huge 2023 planned as his debut album comes quickly into view, Sam Tompkins will head out on a full EU Tour in November. The tour will follow a packed summer of festival appearances, including supporting PINK @ BST Hyde Park on June 24th and an appearance at Boardmasters on August 12th, with a stateside tour incoming.
“Don’t try to give it up, that’s what they want you to do.”
Championing authenticity without taking himself too seriously and using his ever-growing platform to encourage others to do the same, Sam Tompkins is an artist apart – evidenced by his huge following that continues to grow exponentially. He has quickly become the Brit of choice for huge US stars to collaborate with; Nicki Minaj sampled his song, “Whole,” on the single, “Love In The Way,” and JNR Choi’s track, “To The Moon,” featured Sam’s vocal and made waves across the music industry, peaking at #1 on Spotify’s Viral Hits chart.
With a literal army of followers moving alongside him, he crashed into the top 10 of the UK album charts with his EP, “who do you pray to,” last year, and he sells out every venue he puts his name against. Justin Bieber is a major champion and friend of Sam’s and invited him on stage to perform with him on his EU Tour. Elton John and Shawn Mendes are admirers, and Fred Again, Sam Smith, Drake, and Bebe Rexha have co-signed his work. Closer to home, JayKae jumped onstage with Sam in 2021, and renowned UK artists Krept & Konan, Chip, and Clean Bandit are also fans.
