Today the group has shared the final two tracks that will complete their Sweet ’17 Singles series compilation album.

The album brings together 12 songs in total, with the last singles released today being “In The Meadow” and “We Will Not Make It (Not Without You).” While the 7-inches were only available to the 300 people who bought the subscription, all 12 songs will be compiled and released as a limited edition 12″ on February 9th via Grand Jury.

Sam Smith Shares New Song “Pray” and Announces ‘The Thrill Of It All 2018 Tour’

posted by Oscar October 6, 2017

Sam Smith has detailed his forthcoming sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, which will be released worldwide on November 3rd via Capitol Records, and has taken opportunity of the announcement to also share new song “Pray.”

The song’s title sets the theme right off the bat for the elements you’ll hear in the track’s production and lyrics, incorporating elegant strings and a lively choir for backing vocals to a Gospel-tinged sound that is a proper accompaniment to Smith’s singing about reading the bible and being his counterpart’s disciple while admitting he’s more sinner than saint. Smith’s seemingly got another hit on his hands here.

Smith has also announced the North American dates for The Thrill Of It All tour. The trek through arenas will kick off on June 18, 2018 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto and moving on to shows at Barclays Center in Brooklyn (June 27), New York City’s Madison Square Garden (June 29) and before concluding back in Canada at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on September 13. See below for more tour details.
