MTV Brand New Nominee Sam Smith Teases Debut Album
Singer recently won his first BRIT Award...
For Sam Smith, 2013 has been a stellar year.
Fresh from winning his first BRIT Award, the singer-songwriter today announced the title of his debut album, In The Lonely Hour, which is set to drop in May.
Having already scored a number one hit with Naughty Boy on the summer sensation La La La, the pressure is off for Sam but he’s just going from strength to strength. Last week YouTube announced La La La was one of the top 10 most-watched videos in 2013.
Today Sam released a two-minute trailer for the album, giving a sneak peek of the recording process with snippets of behind-the-scenes footage. He recently posted on his blog that watching the album come together has been “overwhelming”.
“The majority of lyrics and melody is me, and let’s just say it’s been a bit of an emotional roller coaster of a year,” wrote the singer.
But this is just the beginning for the London-based lad. After being announced as one of our MTV Brand New for 2014 nominees last month, Sam has also confirmed a US tour next year.
Today Sam tweeted: “I got so many gifts for you all from now till May!!!!!!! Just you wait.”
