UK Singer-Songwriter Sam Heselwood Shares Heartbreaking New Piano Ballad ‘I Remember’

New Zealand-born, UK-based singer-songwriter Sam Heselwood has got us feeling all the feels on his heartbreaking new piano ballad ‘I Remember’ (stream below).

The stirring new single, which fans of artists like Lewis Capaldi and Dean Lewis are likely to dig, was inspired by some tear-jerking subject matter.

Sam Heselwood – ‘I Remember’

“‘I Remember’ was written from the perspective of if my partner was to pass away,” the artist explains in a press statement. “The lyrics convey the universal theme of lost love, expressing a yearning for the passionate moments we would have once shared.”

He continues: “The song reflects on the joy of being in love, overcoming challenges, and dancing under the stars. It was written on the last day of a six-day songwriting week at Parachute Studio, Auckland. It was written, recorded and produced in 6 hours. I had played a gig the night before and was over-tired and over-caffeinated. I got paired with the amazing local Auckland-based producer/writer Joel Jones and special guest Alex Stacey, the incredible Welsh producer/songwriter. I remember clearly saying that I was in the mood to pour my heart into something.”

Growing up in the small rural town of Darfield, New Zealand, Sam originally planned on following a professional Rugby career before a severe neck injury halted his sporting dreams. Sam didn’t start writing music until the age of 19, but by 21, he had become a finalist at the Golden Guitar Awards for his song ‘High Off Love’ – which was recorded in his room on a USB mic.

Take his new single ‘I Remember’ for a spin up above.
