New Music: Sam Smith - 'Too Good at Goodbyes'

  /  09.07.2017

Sam Smith is back.

Three years since his Grammy-winning debut In the Lonely Hour, the British singer-songwriter releases “Too Good at Goodbyes,” the lead single from his highly-anticipated sophomore album.

“You must think that I’m stupid,” sings Smith. “You must think that I’m a fool / You must think that I’m new to this, but I have seen this all before.”

The soulful torch song, produced by Stargate and Jimmy Napes, was inspired by a past relationship. “This song is about a relationship I was in and it’s basically about getting good at getting dumped,” explained Smith. “It’s been a long while since I’ve put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come.”

Smith’s sophomore album, which is due before Christmas, is rumored to be titled TPH-50HR, a reference to his childhood home. It will be his first full-length effort since In the Lonely Hour, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

It is still unclear who Smith worked with for his sophomore project, but he has teased collaborations with Timbaland, Clean Bandit, and Adam Lambert.

Last week, Smith penned a letter to fans, hinting at new material. “Thank you for being so patient and for letting me have the past year to really exam into my mind and write music so freely,” he wrote. “I feel so rejuvenated and have so many stories I can’t wait to tell you.”

To celebrate his return, Smith will perform new material for fans during a series of intimate shows in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin this month.
