Sam Smith wants to bring 'timeless element' back to music
Sam Smith has revealed his desire to make music "timeless" again.
The singer evokes a modern soul feel and his 2014 debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' topped charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
Speaking in a new interview with GQ, with Brit said that he wants to make music that stands the test of time.
Smith said: "I sound awful saying this all the time, because it sounds like I'm slagging off current pop stars, which I'm not, because I love pop culture.
"But I feel like class and romance have gotten lost. We've become a bit lazy, not just in terms of music. I miss the days when girls would wear full long dresses and just stand onstage and sing. That's what I'm trying to bring back: that timeless element. I want to create music that people will be listening to in fifty years, you know?"
