Sam Smith Says They Had Coronavirus: 'I Got Over It, Luckily'

Sam Smith Says They Had Coronavirus: 'I Got Over It, Luckily'

Sam Smith may have disappointed fans who were eagerly anticipating their new album, but although it's been postponed, a new single has been released.

The Writing's On The Wall singer, 27, said they and their sister had exhibited coronavirus symptoms, and while they were not tested, they believe they had caught the infection.

Sam Smith and Demi Lovato have unleashed their brand-new single "I'm Ready", which celebrates the LGBT+ community "in all its forms".

Watch the music video for "I'm Ready" and read the lyrics...

Speaking to Zane, Sam confirmed the album had a new title and said: 'It's actually better than To Die For.

The video for "I'm Ready" is directed by award-winning filmmaker Jora Frantzis, who has previously helmed videos for Cardi B and Rosalía.

'I've got an album title for album four and I just know the vibe I want.

In a recent interview, Sam spoke about teaming up with Demi and said, "I'm nervous about the song because the song for me is a song that's reaching". He added, "It nearly sounds a bit musical theater at times".

"I'm trying to own that because that is a genuine feeling that comes out sometimes in the studio and it's fun", they continue. "I gotta take that risk tonight/ I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready/ For someone to love me/ I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready/ For someone to love me, for someone to love me", the dynamic duo harmonize as the chorus begins to rise into an inspiring gospel rhythm. It's really fun to go to that place.

All we can say is how do we sign up to go to this school??

Smith and Lovato are joined by several drag performers - RuPaul's Drag Race stars Valentina and Gigi Goode among them - in the video. And it's basically just one of my inspirations is musical theater and these types of songs that reach. And I think it's me saying that I'm going to reach and it's okay, you know?

Ultimately, they said, the song is "about feeling no shame in some of the things that I make because I'm releasing music in a climate where music's really cool a lot of the time".
