Today sees global superstar Sam Smith (pronouns they/them/theirs) announce their much awaited new single “To Die For.”
The new single sees Smith once again team up with friend and collaborator Jimmy Napes and renowned production duo Stargate for this soothing, heartfelt ballad. Opening with a sample from the 2001 cult film ‘Donnie Darko’ the new single sees Smith slow down the tempo with soaring strings and mellow piano, as their familiar vocals float effortlessly declaring, “I just want somebody to die for.”
Speaking about the new single, Sam Smith explains “Releasing this song is going to be a wild one – I feel like it’s from one of the deepest parts of me. I wrote this with Jimmy Napes and Stargate in LA during a time of self-discovery and heartbreak.
