Singer Sam Smith has released a new song titled Drowning Shadows as a preview of his upcoming project “In the Lonely Hour: Drowning Shadows Edition”.
The singer, who announced that he will re-release his successful 2014 debut album, In the Lonely Hour, said that the song was “the saddest” one he had ever written.
The Grammy-winning singer said he wrote the song even before his breakout hit Stay With Me. The Money on My Mind hitmaker shared that the song was about him sitting in a taxi on his way home when he came to a crossroads.
“One would lead to gay clubs and one would go home. I was in such a lonely sad place, I’d have to decide whether to stay out or go home,” he said.The track, however, could not make it to the original “In the Lonely Hour” album as things did not work out at that time.I always loved it, but something didn’t happen right with the production when we were going through different versions of it. Something didn’t work. I thought of it recently when we were thinking about the repackage, and we went in and just did it with piano.”
