We’ve had major tracks drop from Taylor Swift, Zayn and Sia in recent weeks – and now it’s Sam Smith’s turn.
The openly gay singer has officially released Too Good At Goodbyes, and it’s exactly what you’d expect from the star.
It’s Sam’s first single in two years. His last release was the hit Bond theme tune Writing’s On the Wall.
‘I’m so excited to be back’
In an Instagram story, Sam told fans: ‘I feel physically sick, this is very intense. It is a weird experience, I’m so excited to be back.
‘This is helping my nerves a little bit, just sitting here talking with you all. It’s going to be mad tomorrow. What I am feeling weird about now is the pace. Tomorrow is going to be the start of it and it all getting faster. I’m just trying to mentally prepare myself.’
‘This song is about me and about a relationship that I was in’
Speaking about the single to Beats 1, Sam said: ‘This song is about me and about a relationship that I was in. I’m still very, very single.
‘I think I’m even more single than I was when I released In the Lonely Hour, so I’m insanely single.
‘This song is about me and about a relationship that I was in.
‘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. People are going to see, this one as I’ve said is about me and something that I’ve gone through.’
‘The wait was worth it’
Too Good At Goodbyes has been embraced by fans.
One wrote on Facebook: ‘The wait was worth it. Sam Smith is one if not the best vocalist of our generation. As a fan of heavy metal and rock music I cannot help but love Sam’s music.
‘The soul and heart in his music is apparent and I’ll wait however long to hear more.’
Sam has kept a low profile over the last 18 months since winning the 2016 Best Song Oscar.
While accepting the award on stage, he mistakenly referring to himself as the first out gay man to win an Oscar, leading to criticism from Dustin Lance Black, among others.
