Diamonds may be forever, but fans won’t have to wait that long to hear Sam Smith’s new single.
In an Instagram post on Monday (Sept. 14), Smith officially announced the release of their latest single “Diamonds,” due out this Friday (Sept. 18). “DIAMONDS New single coming this Friday, September 18th x,” they wrote under their photo.
“Diamonds” will be the second original solo single from Smith in 2020, following their heartbreak anthem “To Die For” released in February. As of late, Smith has released a number of wide-ranging collaborations with stars like Demi Lovato, Burna Boy and Tiwa Savage, while also occasionally giving fans a taste of their vocals in short social media videos.
Back in March, following the global shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Smith announced that they would be renaming and delaying the release of their third studio album. Originally titled “To Die For,” Smith wrote in a social media post that the timing and title of the project didn’t “feel right,” while promising that “there will be an album this year.”
