As pop superstar Sam Smith has continued to release new singles, fans have been left wondering — when is the singer's third album coming? While the star didn't offer many specifics, they did give fans a look into their exhaustive process this week.

In an Instagram post published on Wednesday (Oct. 2), Smith shared a hilarious snap of themselves sprawled out on the floor, in a complete starfish position, staring up at the ceiling. Fittingly, Smith captioned this photo simply by saying, "Writing my third album like..."

The news comes at a big moment for Smith — in an emotional post sent out last month, the star publicly changed their pronouns to "they/them," explaining that "after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am." The star also recently got to sing along with Renée Zellweger on their cover of "Get Happy" for the soundtrack of the buzzy biopic Judy.
