Hold everything! Sam Smith is working on new music after taking a hiatus in 2016, and it’s all we can focus on right now.
On Tuesday (June 6), Smith finally gave fans what they’ve been waiting for… proof that he is working on a new album and it came in the form of not one, but multiple pictures. In fact, the “Writing’s on the Wall” singer posted nine images that shed light on what he’s been up to.
Each image shows some element of Smith inside a recording studio, making music magic… well, at least we assume the songs will be magical, since the Grammy-winning singer has yet to let us down in that department.
“Recording x,” image after image reads on Instagram, and that’s really all we need to know.
There are pictures of Smith focusing at the mixing board, ones of him sitting inside the recording booth, another of him laughing with someone on his team, and a picture of him at a microphone.
There are also images of his team, the machines he using to record and produce his hit tracks, and the faces that he sees daily that make up the recording process. With every image it’s like looking into a hidden world, and it’s so cool.
Plus, the pictures have an old feel to them, and aren’t meant to look touched up or fresh. Instead, they are authentic and real, which is exactly what we’d expect from the “Stay With Me” singer.
The 25-year-old singer also shared a sweet message to his fans after he released the studio pictures, and it makes us want to listen to his new album ASAP.
“Reading through all your comments x Love you all so much. Can’t wait for you all to hear the music!!!!! ❤😭💃🏼,” Smith tweeted on Tuesday.
We can’t wait to hear it either! Now all we need is an album title, release date, and possibly the release of the album’s first single, and then we’d be ready to go. To see all of Smith’s studio pictures click here.
