Sam Smith Announces New Album and Tour


Sam Smith has announced that his new album The Thrill Of It All will be released on November 3rd. The announcement was coupled with the release of a new single, “Pray,” produced by Timbaland.

The singer also announced a large run of North American tour dates for 2018.

Thrill Of It All finds Smith once again working alongside close friend and long-time collaborator Jimmy Napes plus Timbaland, Malay, Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd and Stargate. He also collaborates with the unsigned artist YEBBA on the song “No Peace.”

Smith is set to perform at this year’s We Can Survive concert, set for October 21st at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Smith will appear alongside Alessia Cara, Harry Styles, Kesha, Khalid, Lorde, Macklemore, P!nk and Sam Hunt.

Meanwhile, Smith performed two of his new songs, “Too Good at Goodbyes,” and “Pray,” on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and totally killed it. The show was hosted by Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot.

Smith’s SNL performances marked the third time the singer had appeared at Studio 8H: In addition to singing a pair of tracks on a Louis C.K.-hosted episode in 2014, Smith returned the following year as a surprise vocalist when Disclosure were the musical guests.
