Sam Smith may be too good at goodbyes, but he’s even better at keeping surprises.
This week, Smith revealed to his fans not only of an alleged new beau, but on Thursday night the Grammy award-winning artist also gave the title and tracklist of his upcoming new album.
The singer took to social media yesterday evening to announce that his new album “The Thrill of It All,” will be coming on Nov. 3. The tracks off his sophomore album were also revealed, with titles such as “Him,” “Baby, You Make Me Crazy” and “Say It First” being posted for fans to see. The Oscar-winning star told his followers that they could visit samsmithworld.com to pre-order the album and get tickets to his live shows.
This was not the only treat fans were given this week.
Our first surprise came on Tuesday, when the singer stepped out with “13 Reasons Why” star Brandon Flynn to see a Broadway show. The alleged couple were caught kissing on what appeared to be a date to see “Dear Evan Hansen.” Smith tweeted of his “snot cry” after the night’s festivities.
Smith and Flynn had fans fooled, with both stars denying dating rumors this year. The “Too Good At Goodbyes” singer told E! News in 2016 that he had never had a boyfriend, and in a recent interview with Zane Lowe, promoting his new music, he stated being “insanely single.” Flynn was dodging his own suspected love interests, when fans tried to ship him with his fellow Netflix co-star Miles Heizer, which the actors confirmed was simply a close friendship.
Although, neither Smith and Flynn have given a comment on their romance, fans are keeping a close eye, hinting that the two are acting chummy on Instagram, liking and commenting on each other’s post.
This is a perfect way to kick-off Smith’s upcoming performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, which he’s been teasing all week. Perhaps, Flynn will send his support to Smith on his exciting news, but until then check out Smith’s second single “Pray,” now streaming on Spotify.
