Sam Smith Set to Release New Single “Love Me More”
Next week Sam Smith is gearing up to return with their new single, "Love Me More".
The 29-year-old British pop star is set to follow up 2020's Love Goes LP and the festive track "The Lighthouse Keeper" with the new ballad on April 28.
Last month, it was reported that they had been back in the studio working on a new studio album and "enjoying" creating what is said to be a "surprise" for fans.
The 'Stay With Me' hitmaker has reportedly been in Los Angeles recording and is planning to release the album later this year. The album is thought to take a new direction sonically.
Smith is known for taking inspiration from personal circumstance to aid their songwriting and has had a series of short romances, including with furniture designer boyfriend Francois Rocci and now-close friend Jonathan Zeizel after they dated in 2014, but now prefers to keep schtum about private matters.
Speaking in 2015, he said: "I made a mistake by posting pictures of us on Instagram and making it seem more serious than it was. I've learned that I need to hold off before I start getting the public involved."
Smith's debut studio album, In the Lonely Hour, was released in May 2014. The album's lead single, "Lay Me Down", was released prior to "La La La". The album's second single, "Money on My Mind", became Smith's second number one single in the UK. The third single, "Stay with Me", was internationally successful, reaching number one in the UK and number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, while subsequent singles "I'm Not the Only One" and "Like I Can" reached the top ten in the UK. The album won four awards, at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, including Best Pop Vocal Album, Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and nominations for Album of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
As of April 2021, Smith has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. His achievements include four Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, three Billboard Music Awards, and an American Music Award, as well as a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. Smith is genderqueer and uses they/them pronouns.
