Sam Smith Announces 'In The Lonely Hour' Two-Disc Re-Release Featuring New Track 'Drowning Shadows'
Sam Smith has just announced that he is re-releasing his award-winning (and chart-topping) debut album In The Lonely Hour as the new, double-disc set In The Lonely Hour: The Drowning Shadows Edition -- a move that he calls his "final bow" before his second album.
The release's second disc will be filled with one-off tracks and covers, as well as a brand-new song called "Drowning Shadows." Produced by frequent Smith collaborators Jimmy Napes and Steve Fitzmaurice, "Drowning Shadows" is "a stripped back, heart-wrenching ballad" per the press release (would you expect anything less?).
