Sam Smith’s mother once stole a mug from the Beatles’ iconic studio.
On Monday, the singer appeared on the Australian show “The Project” and talked about the time their mom lifted a branded mug from Abbey Road Studios during a tour when they were 15.
“I will be honest, I didn’t take it, my mum took it. Seriously, my mum put it in the handbag. I didn’t have a handbag. It was a mug, an Abbey Road mug,” they said, according to the Daily Mail.
Smith added, “Abbey Road is such a sanctuary of music” and they “wanted a piece of that sanctuary at home!”
Earlier this month, Smith shared a photo of the mug on Instagram, and in September they announced a one-off show at Abbey Road on Oct. 30 to celebrate the release of their new album Love Goes.
