iTunes Editors’ Notes

In the year before the release of In the Lonely Hour Sam Smith built unstoppable momentum, piling up critical accolades in the UK (including a BRIT Critics’ Choice award and top honors in the BBC Sound of 2014 poll) and prominent cameos (including Disclosure's “Latch” and Naughty Boy’s “La La La”). The British singer/songwriter’s debut, In the Lonely Hour, lives up to the stratospheric expectations. Packed with synth-driven throwback grooves (“Restart”), falsetto-adorned soul-pop (“Money on My Mind”), and epic ballads (some created with Adele collaborators Eg White and Fraser T. Smith) the album is accessible and instantly memorable. Although Smith shines when the songs are brisk or doleful, it’s the midtempo numbers—“I’m Not the Only One” and gospel-inflected “Stay with Me”—where his finely tuned phrasing and velvet falsetto inspire chills.

Beautiful soulful voice

I've never been so instantly moved by music as Sam Smith has done to me. His voice is so pure. His lyrics are so moving. I literally feel his songs in the pit of my stomach. This guy has a beautiful, soulful, amazing talent! I look forward to owning this album and playing it over and over again. Also planning to get the vinyl! That's how much I love it.

one listen, and you cannot get the songs out of your head (in a good way). Not to mention, he has a voice of an angel. Sam Smith is a rare gem, you will not be disappointed!!

For most of his teens, Smith balanced study with music, soaking in the raw and passionate approach to performance exemplified by his favorite artists at that time such as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, and Chaka Khan. "Latch" hit the upper reaches of the U.K....
