Sam Smith Announces “Lay Me Down” As Next Single: Listen
Sam Smith is extending his pop music takeover from 2014 into the new year! The UK singer has revealed the next single from his debut LP In The Lonely Hour. The pick? “Lay Me Down!”
The crooner performed the tune as part of a birthday celebration on The Ellen Degeneres Show yesterday (January 29), and the crowd seemed to be pleased with Smith’s song choice. He actually re-recorded the track along with Jimmy Napes and Steve Fitzmaurice to create a new version of the stripped and minimal ballad.
“Lay Me Down” follows tracks like “Money On My Mind,” “Stay With Me” and more. Take a listen to the revised tune below, and catch Sam Smith on February 8 where he will be performing at the 57th annual Grammys!
