Sam Smith is going full disco.
On Friday, the singer release his new single, a re-imagining of the 1977 Donna Summer classic “I Feel Love”, produced by Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence.
Smith also appeared on “New Music Daily” on Beats 1 to talk with Zane Lowe about the new record.
“It’s a mad cover. I just didn’t think it was going to work, and then we did it, and yeah, I’m really happy with it,” Smith said of the single.” It was a team decision. I mean, obviously I’ve wasted years and years at Horse Meat Disco in Vauxhall, and this song is the anthem of queer life for me, to be quite honest.”
The singer also talked about what’s in store for 2020 and his highly anticipated third album.
“When it comes to the writing I’m doing, I feel like there is no restrictions anymore,” he said. “And I think with my second record, I still love it very much. But, I did feel very … I felt the weight from the first records though, when I felt this incredible pressure to deliver something to people. But now, the only pressure is the pressure I’m putting on myself for me and what I love and what I want to do because I realize that’s what people love.”
