The Sam Smith star continues to shine bright as the Grammy Award winner unveiled his newest single, “Diamonds.”
In an Instagram post on Monday (September 14th), Smith officially announced the release by saying: “DIAMONDS New single coming this Friday, September 18th x,” beneath his photo.
“Diamonds” will be the second solo single from Sam this year, following his heartbreak anthem “To Die For” that was released in February. The UK singer/songwriter has blessed fans with a number of prior collaborations with such fellow artists as Demi Lovato, Burna Boy and Tiwa Savage, all the while previewing a taste of their vocals via short social media videos.
“Diamonds” follows a series of events that began at the start of the COVID-19 lockdowns when Smith announced that he’d be renaming and delaying the release of his third studio album To Die For. Given the global pandemic, the London native notified fans that the project name didn’t “feel right,” while still promising that “there will be an album this year.”
