In an interview with ET, he confirmed that we won’t be hearing anything new from him while he takes time off to, well, be a normal 23-year-old.
“I’ve been going now for three years nonstop and it feels right for me to just go home and just live my life and be a 23-year-old. My love life, the downs and ups, it never stops, so I’m always inspired by stuff like that, but it’d be good to spend some time dating.”
He did provide a little tidbit about the followup to the now-classic In The Lonely Hour:
“I have been writing a little bit. Already I have a little bit of a direction of what I want to say and what I want to do and the sound, how I want things to sound, but there’s a long way to go.”
We’ll miss you, Sam, but we definitely support you getting your Adele on and letting us miss you a bit.
Now pardon us while we play “Make It To Me” (and tell anyone who hasn’t heard it to go listen to it RIGHT NOW).
