EDITORS’ NOTES

Sam Smith's plaintive voice is a quaveringly vulnerable thing. As fragile as Adele's is robust and every bit as emotive, it has taken him from special-guest status on dance tracks by Naughty Boy and Disclosure to his own James Bond song and beyond. Whether he's dramatically crooning torch songs with an orchestra or exploring his upper register over dance beats, Smith's tracks are often stark and confessional—heartbroken postcards from the end of his tether—and tinged with gospel fervour and the raw honesty of soul.
