The film will also feature Smith talking about his female alter-ego, "Karamel."
The latest exclusive documentary short from Apple Music, On The Record: Sam Smith - The Thrill Of It All, will debut on the service on Nov. 3. According to a release announcing the project, the film will feature interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of Smith reflecting on the success of his Grammy-winning 2014 debut album, In The Lonely Hour, and how its world-wide success affected his life and work.
The film will coincide with the release of Smith's sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, which will drop on the same day, featuring stripped-down performances and interviews with Smith and producers Timbaland, Poo Bear and Jimmy Napes. "I went through, like, this vortex, came out, I feel like I've rebuilt myself as a stronger thing and I'm just gonna go into the vortex again," he says in a preview that features a montage of studio sessions. "I wasn't trying to make a big pop record when I made this album. I was actually just trying to make something personal and like a diary."
Smith, who recently discussed how he feels "just as much woman as I am man," will also discuss gender fluidity and his female alter-ego, "Karamel," in the movie, including a funny bit in which he claims Karamel is the one who has really sold 24 million albums.
