Sam Smith and Normani unveiled an acoustic version of their hit song ‘Dancing With a Stranger’ on Friday (Feb. 15).

The new arrangement of the breakup anthem trades the original’s sultry R&B for a dreamy, slowed-down vibe. Quiet piano and gorgeous strings replace pulsing bass and shimmering production while the two pop stars trade verses about rebounding from heartbreak by seeking solace in the arms of strangers on the dancefloor.

“Dancing With A Stranger” is the first new music from Smith -- who earlier this week opened up about his struggles with body image in a vulnerable Instagram post -- since “Promises,” his 2018 collaboration with Calvin Harris.

Meanwhile, Normani recently dropped the spacey video for her latest single “Waves” featuring 6lack. The former Fifth Harmony member’s debut solo album is expected later this year.
