British singer Sam Smith would really like everyone to stay with him, at least for a bit longer, because he’s apparently got some new music coming “very, very, very soon." That’s what the 25-year-old singer said in his own words in a note shared on his Facebook on Thursday morning giving his fans an update on the long-awaited follow up album to 2014’s The Lonely Hour.
“The wait is nearly over. Something is coming very very very soon,” the note reads about halfway through. “I’m scared and excited at the same time. I’ve poured my soul and heart into this record…and see you in the not so distant future.”
Smith has yet to officially announce the follow up to his Grammy-winning debut album. Following The Lonely Hour’s release on New Year’s Day in 2014, Smith became a household name in contemporary pop and R&B. He would go on to receive six nominations for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards and win in four categories including Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album. He would also go on to win an Academy Award for co-writing the theme to the 2015 James Bond film "Spectre," with "Writing's on the Wall."
Smith hasn’t performed since last summer and hasn’t toured since wrapping up an Australian run back in December 2015. The note shared across his socials on Thursday must mean he’s pretty close to revealing when his sophomore album, as well as its accompanying tour dates, will arrive.
