Fresh from winning the Critics' Choice awards with the BRIT Awards and knocking out Ella Eyre and Chloe Howl out of his way. British singer - Sam Smith is about to take on 2014 with his new projects.
2013 was a breakthrough year for Sam Smith, he featured on Naughty Boy's hit single ‘La La La’ - which reached number 1 in the charts and won a MOBO Award. To releasing his own music ‘Lay Me Down’ - a track off his forthcoming album ‘In The Lonely Hour’. And to freshly signing a deal with Capitol Records in the United States. 2013 was just the stepping stone to Smith's takeover for 2014, getting his name on to a lot of people's lips and staying there. To add to the accolade Sam has just been announced as the winner of the prestigious BBC Sound Poll 2014.
His first single release will be the albums big pop moment, ‘Money On My Mind’, a Two Inch Punch produced smash. But there is melancholia within. Centering on the subject on an unrequited love, it is a duty bound to make the listener a little teary as it uplifts.
‘‘I think so. I've been talking about album titles and people are saying "oh but it's too sad" but that's what it's about. I was sad and I wrote about being sad.’’ is what Sam Smith had to say about his new project.
