Sam Smith in Kids Again video

Cuddle up with a loved one, or if you're alone, with a nice cup of cocoa, put on your headphones and let yourself get lost in Sam Smith's beautiful new album Love Goes. Go on a journey through mournful tales of love lost, inspirational and uplifting ballads, and dance tracks to die for on this new album where Smith is able to show off the whole range of their once in a generation voice.

On the album, Smith shows why they have over 25 million albums sold, Grammy, Oscar, and Golden Globe awards. Their voice is like no one else in music right now. Both fans of Smith’s earlier work and new listeners who haven’t fallen in love with their smooth and soulful voice and sweeping soundscapes will return to this album over and over again.

“Put your hands in the air if you sometimes ever get sad like me,” Smith croons in the boppy “So Serious,” a song about not letting the world get you down. The singer is a master at combining hard hitting emotional lyrics with ridiculously danceable beats. "Dance (‘Til You Love Someone Else)" is the perfect song to dance away the pain of recent heartbreak. It’ll make you wish you’ve just been dumped so you can dance until you love someone else.

“The last two years has been the most experimental time of my life, personally but also musically,” Smith said in a statement. “Every time I went into the studio, I promised myself I would shoot for the stars and have no limitations. The result has been so magical and so therapeutic and FUN.” This attitude shows on the album, with a wide range of topics and sounds that Smith explores.

None of Love Goes sounds forced, you can tell that Smith is in a place where they're putting out excatly the music they want to make. And it's exactly the music we want to hear.

In addition to eleven brand new tracks, including songs featuring Burna Boy and Labrinth, the album also features six bonus tracks of previously released hits, like the collaborations “Dancing With A Stranger” with Normani, “I’m Ready” with Demi Lovato, and “Promises” with Calvin Harris. It also comes with the new video for "Kids Again," director by Alasdair McLellan. This is the album's second video after "Diamonds."

Smith doesn’t miss a single beat in letting the world know that they’re here to stay and they won’t be held in by expectations or traditions. Not only do they have one of the most beautiful voices in music today, but one of the most exciting as well. Listen to Love Goes now everywhere music is available.
