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.

Customer Reviews

Oh. My. God.

This guy is AMAZING.

Truly Inspirational

Sam’s songs nothing short of magnificent. I commend him not only for his astounding vocal control, power, and dynamic, but also for creating pop music that is soulful and is in no way generic.

Or as smooth as the silken sheets on the bed of a powerful king from some far off Asian land. Seriously guys, his voice is perfect.

Although the first solo single from soul-inspired, London-born artist Sam Smith was issued in early 2013, it was his soaring vocal contribution to Disclosure's October 2012 U.K. garage track "Latch" that brought him to most people's attention. 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....
