Sam Smith released his new song, “Too Good at Goodbyes,” on Sep. 8, 2017. “Too Good at Goodbyes” is a beautiful song that Smith himself said was inspired by heartbreak.
The sound of his new chart-topper is a sound that is familiar to his fans. His last album, “In the Lonely Hour,” also shows off his bluesy and romantic voice. There is always a sense of love, loss, and longing in his music.
Smith told BBC newsbeat, “To be honest, this song isn’t about anyone else, this is about me and how I deal with heartbreak. It isn’t about the other person. The other person was actually really lovely, which makes it all that much harder.”
Smith has a true gift for pouring his heart out in his music. From “Money on my Mind” to “Too Good at Goodbyes,” one can always feel his emotion when they listen to his melodic voice.
Smith’s new album, “The Thrill of It All,” will be released on Nov. 3, 2017. It will consist of ten songs: “Too Good at Goodbyes,” “Say It First,” “One Last Song,” “Midnight Train,” “Burning,” “HIM,” “Baby, You Make Me Crazy,” “No Peace,” “Palace,” and “Pray.” Fans can expect more emotional melodies from Smith, but this album will have a darker side.
Smith told Rolling Stone about the problem he had with drinking in early 2016. “When you drink a lot, when you go out too much, the next day isn’t so fun. And when you’re really supersensitive and emotional, like I am, it’s just not good for you,” he said.
