It's been a while since we've heard from Sam Smith. Following the release of his 2014 debut album In the Lonely Hour, which helped him take home four Grammy Awards with its massive single "Stay With Me," Smith put his music career on the back burner.

After spending his whole life crafting and perfecting In the Lonely Hour, the singer had to go back to the drawing board to create his sophomore album. It all starts by going out, living your life, and drawing from new experiences. Over the last year or so, Smith has done just that, and he's ready to return to the spotlight with "Too Good at Goodbyes." You can watch the video for his new song above.

Smith posted a photo of himself holding the vinyl copy of his new single, and revealed the release date.

 

‘Too Good At Goodbyes'. 8th September 2017. So excited for you to hear the new single xx
