Sam Smith on new record: 'I refuse to think it will be the hardest album'
'Writing's On The Wall' hitmaker Sam Smith has opened up about the follow-up offering to his well-received debut album, 'In The Lonely Hour'.
The superstar told BBC radio host Annie Mac that work on his next record is coming along well, but he doesn't want to get ahead of himself so is taking it as it comes.
He explained to the on-air programme: "I genuinely thought this was going to be the hardest album - it still could be - but I refuse to think like that because this is what I do and what I love to do."
"I write love songs and I'm forever going in and out of relationships and wanting to say things about life and love, and if I had nothing to say over the last year then that's mental because so much has happened to me."
As previously reported, Smith told OK! magazine that this new album is going to be the most honest body of work he has produced to date: "I'm writing when I want to. So when bad things happen in my life, I'm going into the studio and writing about them! I'm excited but it's not going to be anytime soon. I think people are going to get bored of me if I carry on. I'm just trying to make it the most honest work I've ever done."
