Sam Smith follows up the release of highly anticipated third album Love Goes and hit single ‘Diamonds’ by sharing a beautiful Christmas song, ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’.
Written with and produced by Labrinth, the track goes out today through Capitol Records. Sam said “If any year could make me look forward to the sounds of Christmas, it would be 2020 as more than ever before we are yearning to be around our friends and family once again.
“Christmas symbolises that for me and earlier this year I was inspired to write a Christmas love song. Labrinth and I poured our hearts into this one and it has honestly been pure joy to create and make.”
Listen to ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’ by Sam Smith on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
The song features an accompanying animated video conceptualised and directed by Sam. This is the second time Sam and Labrinth have united having worked together on the eponymous album title track ‘Love Goes’ which was brought to life last month with a very special live streamed performance at Abbey Road Studios.
Building on the 30 billion career streams Sam has amassed and the global success of their
debut and sophomore albums, both #1, multi-platinum selling records in the UK and US.
For Love Goes, Sam enlisted a roll call of revered collaborators from Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Celine Dion), Shellback/MXM (Robyn, Pink, Britney Spears), the aforementioned Labrinth, 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.
