Sam Smith Is Taking A Break To Focus On Sam Smith


After rocking all of our worlds, winning Grammys, and recording the theme song to the next Bond flick Spectre, Sam Smith is taking a break from music for a while.

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.”

We know we won’t see him on Grindr or Tinder and he hasn’t been linked to anyone publicly since his short-lived romance with Jonathan Ziezel so, this may be the perfect time for him to take a break.

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).
