Amid the ongoing spree of new releases, Sam Smith just resurfaced with some exciting news. The young star is gearing up to drop a new solo single titled, ‘To Die For’. This will mark their second solo tune of 2020. The first being the haunting, heart wrenching track ‘To Die For’ which arrived in February.
Now, Smith broke the news on social media with a simple post. It featured a picture of the star in an olive green button-down, with a pearl stud in their ear. Under this gorgeous picture, their caption simply read, “DIAMONDS. New single coming this Friday, September 18th X”.
Smith followed this up with a teaser featuring a few lines from the track. We got a taste of two lines that read, ‘You dream of glitter and gold/ My heart’s already been sold’. Below the post, the star shared their excitement over the new single in a sweet little message. “New music is on the way!! Can’t wait to share Diamonds with you gorgeous people,” Smith wrote.
What Else Has Sam Smith Been Up To?
Over the past few months, Smith has been quite active in the music scene. They’ve managed to notch some stellar collaborations from the likes of Demi Lovato, Burna Boy and Tiwa Savage. The latter worked alongside Smith on a track titled, ‘Temptation’ which made its landing just last month. Featuring sparkly harmonies and sultry verses, this tune found a space on Tiwa’s 2020 album of the same name.
Speaking of albums, Smith initially planned to title their new record, ‘To Die For’, but decided against it in light of the global coronavirus pandemic. The album itself has seen a delay due to the global crisis, but Sam has promised that it will drop this year.
But for now, we can’t wait to get a first taste of ‘Diamonds’ this Friday.
