It’s been two long years since Sam Smith released The Thrill Of It All, but the singer is finally giving details on what fans can expect on the upcoming album. In a recent interview, Smith reveals that the next album will go away from the acoustic-soulful sound, and will be completely pop-driven.
Sam explains, “I feel like I have recently shown a side of me which I normally keep to myself or for my family and friends. I showed everyone it and everyone loved it. It’s almost given me permission to kinda do what I’ve always dreamed of doing but I was always scared to do, which is pop music.”
They add, “I just naturally started getting back into the studio and started to write. I caught this wind and started riding this wave and I haven’t stopped since.”
Sam didn’t go into specifics about when the new album drops but promises it will be sometime in 2020.
