Do you remember Sam Smith? With the internet’s ever-dwindling attention span, you’d be forgiven for forgetting, but the “Stay With Me” singer is back with another tearjerker.
“Too Good At Goodbyes” is Smith’s first single since 2015, though he teased new music last August. And like his previous songs, it’s heavy on emotion and choral flourish. He said on Twitter the song is a “love letter to England & to love.”
In a recent interview with Elton John, Smith said he was in a “bad place” while making the new album. He also addressed his 2016 Oscar acceptance speech, in which he claimed he was the first openly gay man to win one: “Basically, I fucked up.”
Does Smith have the juice to score another wave of viral hits?
