Noah Kahan and Sam Fender Set ‘Homesick’ Collaboration

Two worlds collide this Friday (Jan. 19) when Noah Kahan and Sam Fender drop the collaborative single, “Homesick.”

Fender will lend vocals to a fresh version of the song, which appears on Kahan’s third studio album, Stick Season, and shared the news on his socials. “See you then x,” he writes.

With the new cut of “Homesick,” Kahan will be keen to keep a good thing going. The Vermont singer and songwriter has reigned over the Official U.K. Singles Chart for the past two weeks with his folky number “Stick Season,” and is on track for a third.

“Homesick” is the fifth official single lifted from Stick Season, following its title track, U.K. top 40 hits “Northern Attitude” (No. 16) and “Dial Drunk” (No. 32), plus “Call Your Mom” (No. 83).

In the United States, Stick Season peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and six of his singles have made impressions on the Billboard Hot 100, including “Stick Season,” peaking at No. 14. Kahan will support the album with another major tour of north America, his We’ll All Be Here Together trek, kicking off late March 2024.

Kahan is coming off a particularly busy year in 2023 during which he launched The Busyhead Project, which supports and funds mental health organizations that provide care to underserved communities; released a deluxe edition of Stick Season (We’ll All be Here Forever), which pushed the album into the U.S. top 10 for the first time; earned his first No. 1 on a Billboard airplay chart with “Dial Drunk,” following a fresh mix with Post Malone; and joined forces with Ranger Station on a Stick Season candle.

Hailing from North Shields, Fender got his career underway with the blessing of Britain’s tastemakers, as he won the Critics’ Choice Award at the 2019 BRIT Awards. Both of his full-length studio albums have gone to No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart, 2019’s Hypersonic Missiles and 2021’s Seventeen Going Under.
