Sam Smith‘s new album may be titled ‘In The Lonely Hour’, yet the Soul-filled crooner won’t be at a loss for fans following his haunting rendition of Whitney Houston‘s ‘How Will I Know’.
Smith’s re-working of the iconic cut took place during a live session at SiriusXM radio over the weekend and always has the industry buzzing.
Famed for its high-octane dance-floor attributes, the Houston hit is deconstructed and re-pieced as spine-tingling ballad.
Take a listen below…
It’s so warming to see acts that are actually deserving getting the light shone on them with such high intensity. Smith is an incredible talent and one worth celebrating.
Hopefully his success opens the doors for fellow Soul acts – regardless of their hue – to also garner the recognition they too deserve. Take from that what you will.
