Following the breakout global success of his debut album, In The Lonely Hour, Sam Smith has revealed his new single, “Too Good At Goodbyes,” out now digitally via Capitol Records worldwide.
“Too Good At Goodbyes” is the first new music from Smith since the release of his Oscar and Golden Globe-winning “Writing’s On The Wall,” the James Bond theme song for Spectre. Written with longstanding collaborator Jimmy Napes, as well as Stargate, “Too Good At Goodbyes” once again demonstrates Smith’s undeniably unique vocal range and emotive songwriting talents.
“This song is about a relationship I was in and it’s basically about getting good at getting dumped. 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 says of the track.
For his musical return, Smith will perform a series of intimate shows in London, New York, Los Angeles and Berlin, and get up close and personal with his fans as he unveils his new repertoire. Show details below, with venues to be announced shortly.
Released in June 2014, Smith’s In The Lonely Hour was the biggest selling UK male debut in the Soundscan era and has gone on to sell 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. In February 2015, Smith set a GRAMMY record, winning a total of four awards – the most ever received by a U.K. artist following the release of a debut album. Smith was named Best New Artist, In The Lonely Hour took Best Pop Vocal Album honors and his single “Stay With Me” won awards for both Record and Song of the Year. On In The Lonely Hour, Smith also earned three Billboard Music Awards, three Brit Awards and six MOBO Awards, among others.
