New Song: Sam Smith – ‘Drowning Shadows’

The last twelve months have seen Sam Smith become ubiquitous on music charts across the globe – thanks largely to his Grammy winning debut ‘In The Lonely Hour.’

Following the set’s gargantuan success, the crooner is repackaging the project for a deluxe re-release sub-titled the ‘Drowning Shadows Edition.’

Due November 6th, little was known about the beefed up re-issue beyond its inclusion of acoustic takes on Whitney Houston’s ‘How Will I Know’ and Amy Winehouse’s ‘Love Is A Losing Game.’

However, tonight on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 radio show, 23-year old Smith premiered new number ‘Drowning Shadows.’

The British star described the track as “the saddest song I’ve ever written and probably the least radio-friendly song I’ve ever written.” He interestingly penned the cut before the hits that made him a household name, yet couldn’t find the right production to fit it.

Upon deciding to re-release the LP, he re-visited the song with his pianist and opted for a simple piano-led backdrop.

Take a listen below…

Solid. So much so that, had it been completed in time, it could easily fit in the mix of top-tier of tracks on the original album.

    I’m sorry, but he’s been looking way better now that he’s lost some weight and his thighs are thick as hell. Yum! I guarantee he’ll find a black man in no time.

      His thighs are thick?

      Where… Lemme see.

        You didn’t see his in Rio and iHeartRadio performances? He STAYS wearing tight skinny jeans to show off and tease potential men. He knows EXACTLY what he’s doing by laying that thirst trap out there for someone to grab. Now, if he had a little something in the back to work with, he’d be under a new man already.

        @NoAngel, girl, who you telling? You better give that man credit for his hard work to get that body right. The same way those thots noticed Drake as soon as he got that body right, we can congratulate Sam for his little accomplishment.

      Yes, Adele can lend him some of her booty so he can have a little something to grab in the back. Sharing is caring.

    He needs not to cover any Amy track. Especially Love is a Losing Game.
    Instead of “beefing” up the old album with covers he should’ve just recorded a new on or an ep at least.

  5. Dev November 2, 2015

    He shouldn’t really cover Whitney either.
