The drought is broken: Sam Smith is back with his first new music in two years. The British soulman returns with “Too Good At Goodbyes,” his first release since 2015’s “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre, which became the first James Bond theme to hit No. 1 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.
Written with longstanding collaborator Jimmy Napes and Stargate, “Too Good At Goodbyes” builds into a gospel chorus and showcases Smith's exceptional range. The torch track is “about a relationship I was in and it's basically about getting good at getting dumped,” says Smith. “It's been a long while since I've put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come.”
