Sam Smith wants a year off but just can’t stop working
09 November 2015, Nirapad News: British soul singer sensation Sam Smith desperately wants to take a year off. But he just can’t stop working on his new album.
The 23-year-old Londoner, who pocketed four Grammy Awards for his debut album “In the Lonely Hour,” has had a whirlwind year filled with performances and promotional tours the world over.
But the astounding breakout success came at a cost and in May Smith had to have surgery on his vocal cords.
So now Smith wants to take a bit of a breather. Except that shutting off is proving harder than expected.
“I have a year off of being on the scene and releasing,” he told journalists in Beverly Hills on Sunday. But “I’m forever working in my head.”
“I’m always going to write music — I can’t sit still when it comes to that thing,” added Smith, sporting stubble and an elegant midnight blue suit.
He joked that, come February, he would be tweeting his fans that he’s ready to release something new.
“I’ll refrain because first people will get sick of me and my family needs me to be home,” he added.
