Sam Smith has announced their new single, “To Die For,” will be out this Friday.
The track opens with a sample of the 2001 cult film Donnie Darko, and features Sam singing, “I just want somebody to die for.”
“Releasing this song is going to be a wild one – I feel like it’s from one of the deepest parts of me,” Sam says in a statement. “I wrote this with Jimmy Napes and Stargate in L.A. during a time of self-discovery and heartbreak. This is for all the lonely hearts out there on another Valentine’s Day xx.”
Sam most recently dropped the song “How Do You Sleep” last summer and they are prepping for the release of a new album.
