Sam Smith - Drowning Shadows

4 years ago

With just days away from the re-release of his debut album In the Lonely Hour, Sam Smith is back with a new single lifted from the two-disc set.

Titled “Drowning Shadows” the song made its debut today via Zane Lowe. When speaking of the song, Smith stated: “‘Drowning Shadows’ is the saddest song I’ve ever written and the least radio-friendly song I’ve ever written,” he told Lowe (via EW). “I wanted to leave people on this artistic little song and this moment. This is proper… really dark.”

According to Sam, the song was actually penned before the popular “Stay With Me” and the other tracks from the album, but due to him not being satisfied with the production. “One would lead to gay clubs and one would go home. I was in such a lonely sad place, I’d have to decide whether to stay out or go home,” he explained about the meaning behind the sad track.

In the Lonely Hour (‘Drowning Shadows Edition’) hits shelves on Friday and will include his collaborations with Mary J. Blige (“Stay With Me”), A$AP Rocky (“I’m Not the Only One”), John Legend (“Lay Me Down”), and Disclosure (“Latch” and “Omen”).
