Sam Smith – Too Good At Goodbyes

Pop/soul singer Sam Smith reveals a somber music video for his latest single, “Too Good At Goodbyes,” a record that follows his international breakout debut album, ‘In The Lonely Hour’ and his Oscar and Golden Globe-winning “Writing’s On The Wall,” the James Bond theme song for Spectre.

In the Luke Monaghan-directed clip, Smith puts the spotlight on relationships and friendships from all sides including heterosexuals to LGBT persons.

Written with go to collaborator Jimmy Napes, and Stargate, “Too Good At Goodbyes” continues to showcase Smith’s polished vocal range and emotive songwriting talents as he sings about a broken relationship.

“I’m never gonna let you close to me,” he sings. “Even though you mean the most to me / ‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts.”

“This song is about a relationship I was in and it’s basically about getting good at getting dumped,” says Smith. It’s been a long while since I’ve put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come.”

Released in June 2014, Smith’s debut album, In The Lonely Hour was the biggest selling UK male debut in the Soundscan era and has gone on to sell 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide.  In February 2015, Smith set a GRAMMY record, winning a total of four awards – the most ever received by a U.K. artist following the release of a debut album. Smith was named Best New Artist, In The Lonely Hour took Best Pop Vocal Album honors and his single “Stay With Me” won awards for both Record and Song of the Year.  On In The Lonely Hour, Smith also earned three Billboard Music Awards, three Brit Awards and six MOBO Awards, among others.
