With their new album Love Goes just days from release, Sam Smith has been hot on that promotional blitz! Amongst their important press duties was an in-depth conversation with Zane Lowe on Apple Music. Sam Smith’s interview is definitely one to remember.
If you have seen the host’s interviews before, then you would understand his passion & authenticity, and he holds that ability to bring the best out of his guests. The talented singer/songwriter was no exception and spoke candidly on what inspired them in the making of their third studio album, citing heartbreak as a key influence:
“I was so heartbroken when writing this record more … I’d say the first proper time I’ve been heartbroken. That feeling of they’re gone, you can’t sleep, the really really bad feeling. The feeling that my mother dreaded us, me and my sisters to feel. And I really feel it. And yeah, this is kind of the first proper heartbreak album I’ve ever written, I’d say because the others were. The others were the idea of it and it was pure unrequited love. This, I would like to say that we loved each other. So I definitely, definitely loved him. So yeah, it was proper.”
