Sam Fender wasn't opposed to another few gigs at St James' Park.

Sam Fender has revealed he'd up 'up for' making his St James' Park gig an annual affair as he teased the release of this third album.

The North Shields-born singer appeared on Steve and Karen's Breakfast Show on Metro Radio yesterday morning where he talked about his two sold-out shows at Newcastle United's home ground last summer.

"That sounds like carnage that," said Fender. "I mean, aye, if you're up for it like. It would be a good way to just end every year to be fair."

Fender's home stadium gigs contributed to boosting Newcastle United's commercial revenue last season and the local economy so it wouldn't be a surprise if the club pushed to host more concerts like the Geordie’s.

Following the release of his new single 'Homesick' with American musician Noah Kahan, the 29-year-old also teased getting back into the studio for his third album.

"So we took a bit of time out, we started working on a load of other stuff, been writing and recording," he told Metro Radio. "We're actually really excited. I'm glad we took the time because like I'm really kind of ready to get back. I will be ready in a couple of months like. In a couple of months time it's gonna be exciting."
