Can it unite the country once more like SPACE MAN?

Sam Ryder has released his new single Somebody, his first since leading us to a record-breaking result in Eurovision earlier this year.

The follow-up to Number 2 smash hit SPACE MAN, Somebody is a boisterious, big-band inspired stomper all about the joy of finding that person that lights your soul on fire and enables you to chase your dreams. 

“Somebody is inspired by YOU! All of the kindness, positivity and joy we’ve experienced so far this year," Sam said in a statement. "Ultimately it’s about the joy of giving love and experiencing love.”

Somebody is expected to help launch Sam's upcoming debut album...although you'll have to keep your eyes peeled on OfficialCharts.com for more information about that...in the meantime, watch the video for Somebody, shot with the help of Sam's own fans, below.
