Grammy award-winning singer Sam Smith has just released his new music video for “Too Good At Goodbyes.” The music video tells the story of his past relationships, depicting scenes from his romantic breakdown, Rolling Stone reported.

The music video begins with a shot of the singer in a room playing with a voice-over. Then, the scene fades to black toward a clip of a village and a wide field of grass.

The video featured scenes between same-sex lovers, a distressed boxer, and a group of friends having fun together. The same-sex lovers are clearly depicting problems they have encountered in their relationships, crying on each other’s shoulders and kissing.

Part of the lyrics read, “And every time you hurt me, the less that I cry / And every time you walk out, the less I love you / Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sand but it’s true / I’m way too good at goodbyes.”

Upcoming album

“Too Good at Goodbyes” is a ballad song performed with piano musical accompaniment. It is his first single from his upcoming album that follows his 2014 award-winning tracks from “In The Lonely Hour.”

It is also Smith’s first single since he recorded “Writing’s On The Wall,” the song from the James Bond movie “Spectre.” The song was awarded Best Original Song at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.

Personal moments

Before the song was launched on YouTube, Sam Smith revealed that “Too Good at Goodbyes” is among his “most personal moments” from his upcoming album, the music magazine also added.

He revealed that the song told about his life and certain people that he met along the way.

The new album is still untitled and there are no details yet on its release date. However, the singer explained that it will be released before Christmas Day, and will feature a collaboration with other artists as well.

He also mentioned that the ballad depicted a “dark period in his personal life,” Rolling Stone reported.

These moments were particularly those when he was dumped by his lover and “started to lose himself.”


“Too Good At Goodbyes” has just earned the No. 5 spot on the Hot 100 music chart, behind “Despacito” and Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” Forbes reported.

However, his new single landed in the No. 1 spot in the Aria Singles Charts, an Australia-based listing of the top songs in the industry. Smith is also known for his previous songs such as "Stay With Me," "Lay Me Down," "I'm Not The Only One," and "Money On My Mind."
