Sam Ryder

Sam is a singer and songwriter from Essex who has seen his popularity go stratospheric, largely thanks to social media.

The Brit co-wrote his Eurovision entry with Grammy winning songwriter Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran, Thinking Out Loud) and Max Wolfgang, and with over 12 million followers and 100 million likes on TikTok, he is currently the most followed UK music artist on the platform.

As the world went into lockdown in March 2020, Sam uploaded the first of his now famous cover videos, quickly catching the attention of celebrity fans including Justin Bieber, Sia and Alicia Keys, who even posted her own video reacting to his cover of her song If I Ain’t Got You.

Since then he's been signed by Parlophone Records, released his debut EP (The Sun's Gonna Rise), and received top-level support from the UK's biggest radio stations.

Lyrics of SPACE MAN

If I was an astronaut, I‘d be floating in mid-air
And a broken heart would just belong, to someone else down there
I would be the centre of my lonely universe
But I‘m only human, and I‘m crashing down to earth

I‘m up in space, man!
Up in space, man!
I‘ve searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There‘s nothing but space, man!
And I wanna go home

If I was an astronaut, I‘d speak to satellites
My navigation systems would search for other life
But I‘d be up here thinking ‘bout what I left behind
‘Cause I‘m only human with the real world on my mind

I‘m up in space, man!
Up in space, man!
I‘ve searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There‘s nothing but space, man!
And I wanna go home

Gravity keeps pulling me down
As long as you‘re on the ground, I‘ll stick around
Stick around
I‘ll stick around

I‘m up in space, man!
Up in space, man!
I‘ve searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There‘s nothing but space, man!, no
Oh, I‘m in the wrong place, man
Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but space, man!
Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but space, man!

I‘ve searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There‘s nothing but space, man...
And I wanna go home
