Oscar-winner Sam Smith promises fans some “really deep” new music in the coming months, stating, “My heart is on the line.”
The singer revealed that his new music is “deeper” than he anticipated.
Speaking to Billboard. Smith stated of his debut album “In the Lonely Hour,” “There’s a few songs I really f**king hate, but then the core of the album, songs like ‘Stay With Me,’ ‘I’m Not the Only One’ — actually all the songs except ‘Money on My Mind’ — I really loved and I’m really proud of the classic-ness of the way they sound, because I still listen to them now and I still love them.
“The music I’m making at the moment, it’s very much a beautiful little transition from there and it fits,” the singer disclosed of his new tunes.
As far as the upcoming record, the Academy Award winner stated of his upcoming music, “Every day I’m having little epiphanies and changes and loving it. But all I can say is that I’m putting my heart even more out on the f**king line.”
“I’m going even deeper. I can’t believe I’m even doing it, but I’m going even deeper,” Smith commented on the new music.
In an upset, Smith beat out frontrunner Lady Gaga for the win, and went on to dedicate his award to the LGBT community, commenting about gay people being underrepresented at the Oscars.
“I stand here tonight as a proud gay man, and I hope we can all stand together as equals one day,” Smith said in his speech.
Smith penned “Writings On The Wall,” the tune for the James Bond film “Spectre.”
“I don’t think very much of myself most of the time, but when (they) ask you to have a go at that, I was just like, ‘I can’t believe they’ve asked me,'” Smith recalled to The Daily Herald.
“People ask if I was scared and I genuinely wasn’t. …I think maybe because in the back of my head I was thinking it maybe wasn’t going to happen and just getting the chance to do it was amazing,” he said of the opportunity to be part of the James Bond legacy.
