Sam Smith Announces New Single, “I’m Not The Only One”: Listen

Sam Smith is completely and utterly crushing it this summer, having already rocketed straight to the top of the charts in both the UK and stateside (a record-breaking debut!) with his critically acclaimed debut studio album, In The Lonely Hour. (Yes, we loved it too.) At the same time, his latest heart-wrenching single “Stay With Me” continues to sit pretty at Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

And he’s not stopping there, either: Today, the UK soul-pop singer announced the latest single from his debut LP: “I’m Not The Only One,” due out on August 31 in the UK and, presumably, making its way stateside sometime later in the year.

Like much of Smith’s work, the piano-led, marching midtempo is an aching case of unrequited love — or, at least, the ache of not being the only love. “When you call me baby, I know I’m not the only one,” he devastatingly croons. Listen to the track after the jump, and let us know what you think of the single selection in the comments below.
