The drought is finally over and Sam Smith is back with a track, turning pain into something beautiful.
“Too Good at Goodbyes” is his first music in 2 years, since 2015’s “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre, which (as far as we can remember) became the first James Bond theme to hit No. 1 on the official UK singles chart.
On words, Smith sings:
“Every time you hurt me, the less that I cry/And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry/And every time you walk out, the less I love you/Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true,”
Showcasing his high notes and exceptional range, it seems that Smith has put behind him the vocal cord injury which plagued him in 2015.
(The song is) “about a relationship I was in and it’s basically about getting good at getting dumped. It’s been a long while since I’ve put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come.” Smith said in an interview
Good news to fans, in support of his new release, Smith will start to play later this month at venues yet to be confirmed.
He’ll start Sept. 11 in Los Angeles, then head east with stops in New York (Sept. 13), London (Sept. 15) and, finally, Berlin (Sept. 18).
