- Sam Smith Premieres New Music Video for “Too Good At Goodbyes”
- English singer-songwriter Sam Smith dropped a new music video for "Too Good At Goodbyes" directed by Luke Monaghan, who created Sam Smith's "Not The Only One" in 2015.
The song is taken from his upcoming sophomore album "TPH-50HR" and written by Sam Smith, Jimmy Napes and Stargate.
He recently told Sir Elton John that his latest songs sprung from a particularly dark period in his personal life.
Sam Smith said;
"I was in a really bad place. I got dumped, which wasn't very nice. Writing music about that kind of thing is normally like therapy for me, but when I got dumped this time 'round I just couldn't write for about two months … My team had to force me to get into the studio, because I almost felt as if I didn't want to do it any more. So, there were moments on there where it got a bit intense and I started to lose myself."
- "It made me really sad for a few weeks afterwards, I was really upset. But my intentions were good. I met Ian afterwards and we had a laugh about it. I'm at peace with it now. Basically, I fucked up. I was so nervous … I'd read Sir Ian McKellen's interview the day before saying that no openly gay man had ever won the Oscar for best actor, and in that moment my brain and my mouth didn't work together. That's nerves for you."
Afterward, he signed off from social media, "I'm logging off for a while. Some Martinis shaken not stirred are definitely in order."
