Two years after taking home multiple Grammys for his debut album, Sam Smith is back with new music. A new single called Too Good at Goodbyes will be arriving at music stores and streaming services on Friday, September 8.

Sam Smith new music news delights fans

“Too Good at Goodbyes” was preceded by a lot of promotion from Sam Smith regarding the new music. Smith first teased his musical comeback in an emotional post on his official Instagram account.

“Something is coming very very very soon,” he said in the picture.

In the past few days, Smith has spoken about his new record in some interviews and on his social media accounts. He promoted the new song on his Instagram and on some Spotify-sponsored advertisements. He was also seen announcing the news through a billboard in New York City.

Smith’s announcement about the new single earned positive responses from fans. He tweeted a photo of Smith sitting while he is holding a copy of the single’s cover art. In fact, as of publishing time, the tweet that signaled the song’s arrival was retweeted 13,189 times and was liked by 43,179 accounts.

Not much is known about the album that contains “Too Good at Goodbyes.” Even the title has not been confirmed yet. Smith did acknowledge that he was able to write as much as 130 songs for the album sessions, part of which was made in Nashville, Tennessee.

He also teased the lyrics of his upcoming song on Twitter and Instagram.

‘Too Good at Goodbyes’ arrives just in time for end of Grammy window

The release of “Too Good at Goodbyes” will make Sam Smith eligible for next year’s Grammys. The eligibility window, which will close on September 30, may put the new song against other high-profile Grammy favorites like Lorde, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Alison Krauss and Taylor Swift.

The new album will be Smith’s first record since his debut run with the “In The Lonely Hour.” The Guardian reported that “In The Lonely Hour” won Smith four Grammys, including three of the top four categories (Album of the Year went to Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories”). He then won an Oscar for Best Original Song for his work on the James Bond theme “Writing’s on the Wall” the following year.

Sam Smith has not yet announced a release date for his sophomore album. But it is expected to be one of the fall season’s most anticipated new records, given the successful run Smith had with his first one. If Smith becomes a Grammy nominee, he may either be in attendance or be scheduled to perform.
