The track was recorded as part of the sessions for the North Shields singer-songwriter’s second studio album, “Seventeen Going Under”, and served as the B-side to the single “Long Way Off”.
‘Alright’ was also previously released as a special edition 7-inch vinyl for Record Store Day 2022.
Last night (July 14), Fender posted the song’s official cover on social media. “Something special is happening tonight,” he wrote.
He then shared a link to the digital version of “Alright,” which is now available to stream and download. Listen now:

“‘Alright’ is one of the first tracks of the ‘Seventeen Going Under’ era,” Fender said. “It was always one of my favorites, and somehow it didn’t make the record. It’s about growing up and the theme of cheating death.
The song comes ahead of its biggest show yet (July 15) at Finsbury Park in London. Support for the outdoor concert will come from Fontaines DC, Declan McKenna and Beabadoobee.

In May, Fender said it was “absolutely ridiculous!” that the outdoor show was sold out. The musician follows in the footsteps of the Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age, Pulp and Liam Gallagher headlining the park.
“I am absolutely delighted to be playing at Finsbury Park,” he said NME as soon as the date is announced. “What a crazy night this is going to be. Some huge artists have played there over the years… it’s going to be wild.
