Sam Smith previews new songs at Los Angeles club show
Sam Smith performed an intimate set at the famed Troubadour club in Los Angeles on Monday night (September 11th), where the British pop prince previewed five songs from his upcoming sophomore album, due out sometime later this year. Among the new cuts that Smith aired in an acoustic format were the first single, "Too Good At Goodbyes," as well as "Midnight Train," "One Last Song," "Burn It" and "Pray."
- Fans were asked to check their phones at the door for the show, no doubt to prevent leaks of the new material.
- Smith opened the show with two hits from his 2014 debut In The Lonely Hour, "“Lay Me Down” and “I’m Not the Only One.”
- The crooner told the audience, “Thank you so much for coming out tonight; I missed you so f**king much,” later adding, " It was important for me to go away for 18 months, so thank you for giving me that time. I promise you the music has benefited from that.”
- Other songs aired by Smith included “Like I Can,” “Latch,” “Stay With Me” and a cover of Alicia Keys’ 2009 R&B hit “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart.”
