Samuel Frederick Smith (born 19 May 1992) is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "Latch", which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart. His subsequent feature—on Naughty Boy's "La La La"—earned him his first number one single in May 2013.
He released his debut studio album, In the Lonely Hour, in May 2014 on Capitol Records UK. The lead single, "Lay Me Down", was released prior to "La La La". The second single, "Money on My Mind", became his second number one single in the UK. The album's third single, "Stay with Me", was an international success, reaching number one in the UK and number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, while the fourth single "I'm Not the Only One" reached the top five in both countries.
In December 2014, Smith was nominated for six Grammy Awards, and at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in February 2015 he won four: Best New Artist, "Stay with Me" for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and In the Lonely Hour for Best Pop Vocal Album.
For his and Jimmy Napes' song "Writing's on the Wall", the theme for the James Bond film Spectre (2015), Smith won the Golden Globe Award and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Following on from the breakout global success of his debut album, “In The Lonely Hour”, Sam Smith has announced his highly anticipated new single “Too Good At Goodbyes”
“Too Good At Goodbyes” is the first new music from Sam Smith since the release of his #1 hit, the James Bond theme song “Writing’s On The Wall” in 2015. Written with longstanding collaborator Jimmy Napes and Stargate, “Too Good At Goodbyes” once again demonstrates Sam’s undeniably unique vocal range and emotive songwriting talents. On the soulful torch song, Sam Smith reflects “This song is about a relationship I was in and its basically about getting good at getting dumped. Its 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.”
