Sam Smith announces his highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘The Thrill of It All’ released via EMI Music and available now.
Too Good At Goodbyes, the first single off the new album, has achieved global success, hitting #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and racing to Gold sales. It also reached Number One on the UK singles chart, delivering Sam his sixth UK number one single, along with Global Spotify Charts, and Australian, UK and US iTunes charts.
‘The Thrill of It All’ sees Sam once again working alongside close friend and long term collaborator Jimmy Napes as well as the likes of Timbaland, Malay, Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd and Stargate. The album also sees Sam collaborate with unsigned artist, YEBBA for their breath-taking track “No Peace”.
Sam gave fans a taste of the new album during a series of intimate shows in London, New York, Los Angeles and Berlin this month. He will also be performing on Saturday Night Live on the 7th October.
This November Sam will star in a world exclusive, one-off 60-minute special at the BBC studios. Filmed in front of a live studio audience, the special will include songs Sam has never previously performed before for a TV audience.
It’s been over three years since Sam Smith’s debut album was released, and since then he has become one of the biggest acts on the planet with over 12 million global album sales and an array of impressive awards, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, three Brit Awards and four Grammys, among others.
