Ladies and Gentlemen, Sam Smith has returned. “Too Good At Goodbyes” is right down his alley, with his signature church choir providing the background accents. To be honest, we were kind of hoping for a different approach rather than the usual heartbreak anthem, but hopefully he has something else up his sleeve.
I’m sure there will be a collaboration with Disclosure on this album, or one in the near future. For now, I think this is a solid comeback track. I don’t think it will do as well as “Stay With Me”, but still a solid track.
After Adele giving us the heartbreak album, we don’t need another from Sam Smith. Still, I’m excited to hear what he brings to the table, his vocals have definitely been missed!
Probably one of the biggest songs of the year, Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ gets cover treatment from the talented Luke James. Luke has made quite the name for himself in the past year or so, opening for Beyonce on her UK leg, and for this guy it’s only the beginning. This cover is fantastic, and one of my favorites that I have heard so far. Luke brings kind of a R&B flow to an already soulful song, and while no one can touch the vocal ability of Sam Smith, Luke definitely holds his own on this track.
A little slow on this post, but I figured better late then never! Sam Smith is genius and this song just proves he can do no wrong. I absolutely can’t wait for this album and hopefully a USA tour to follow!
I have been raving about Sam Smith since I discovered his collab with disclosure, and it hasn’t died down yet. Sam Smith is set to release his debut album InThe Lonely Hour this May, and I couldn’t be more excited! He graces us with another vocally amazing single titled ‘Stay With Me’ in which he swoons us over a light piano track, occasionally accompanied by a church choir as background vocals.
In addition Sam Smith is set to perform on Saturday Night Live this weekend, which will in turn cause his blowup in the USA. Although it is much deserved, I am sad that ticket prices for his tour will be quite expensive due to the blowup.
