Featuring previously released singles "Diamonds" and "My Oasis" with Burna Boy, Smith recently revealed to Apple Music's Zane Lowe that Love Goes is their first "proper heartbreak" record. "I'd say [this was] the first proper time I've been actually heartbroken. That feeling of they're gone, you can't sleep, the really, really bad feeling," they said. "The others were the idea of it and it was pure unrequited love. This, I would like to say that we loved each other. So, I definitely, definitely loved him. So yeah, it was proper."
Smith also unveiled the music video for "Kids Again," recruiting director Alasdair McLellan.
