Sam Smith announces new single ‘Diamonds’, taken from their brand-new album Love Goes released on 30 October through Capitol Records.
Fresh from the release of ‘My Oasis’, featuring the inimitable Burna Boy, new single ‘Diamonds’ showcases the Grammy, BRIT, Golden Globe and Oscar winning singer’s unforgettable vocals at their best with a defiant tale of love lived without regret.
Sam said “The last two years has been the most experimental time of my life, personally but also musically. Every time I went into the studio, I promised myself I would shoot for the stars and have no limitations.

Sam continues, “The result has been so magical and so therapeutic and FUN. I tried not to take myself too seriously when writing a few of these songs. I hope they make you smile, because they made and make me.”
The video sees direction from previous co-creator Luke Monaghan (How Do You Sleep, Too Good At Goodbyes, Writing’s On The Wall). Together, their work has garnered over 2.5 billion streams.
Building on the 30 billion career streams Sam has amassed and the global success of their
debut and sophomore albums, both No.1, multi-platinum selling records in the UK and US,
their highly anticipated third offering Love Goes will be unveiled next month.
For Love Goes, Sam has enlisted a roll call of revered collaborators from Steve Mac (Ed
Sheeran, Celine Dion), Shellback/MXM (Robyn, Pink, Britney Spears), Labrinth (Love Goes
title track), masterminds Stargate as well as good friend Guy Lawrence (Disclosure) and
long-term collaborator Jimmy Napes to curate a collection of songs written over the last
two years, all displaying individuality with every-one telling a different story.
