Sam Smith has announced their third album: To Die For is out May 1 (via Capitol). Smith has also shared the title track, which opens with a sample from the 2001 cult flick Donnie Darko. Listen to “To Die For” and find Smith’s album announcement below.
Smith said in the press release:
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 L.A. during a time of self-discovery and heartbreak. This
is for all the lonely hearts out there on another Valentine’s Day xx.
Last year, Smith released “How Do You Sleep?,” as well as a cover of Donna Summer’s disco hit “I Feel Love” with electronic duo Disclosure. Sam Smith’s last studio album was 2017’s The Thrill of It All.
