Published Feb 11, 2020Sam Smith has announced that their next single is titled "To Die For," and it's arriving this week. The track will be released Friday (February 14) on Valentine's Day.
A press release describes the upcoming song as a "soothing, heartfelt ballad." Apparently, "To Die For," opens with a sample from Donnie Darko, which is then swept away with strings and piano.
"Releasing this song is going to be a wild one — I feel like it's from one of the deepest parts of me," Smith said in a statement. "I wrote this with Jimmy Napes and Stargate in L.A. during a time of self-discovery and heartbreak. This is for all the lonely hearts out there on another Valentine's Day xx."
Prior to "To Die For," Smith's most recent singles were a cover of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" with Disclosure and "Dancing with a Stranger" featuring Normani.
Their last full-length album was 2017's The Thrill of It All.
