Sam Smith knows the wait is over. They are ready to release the long anticipated third album Love Goes, this Friday. RADIO.COM will get all the inside info from the artist during our RADIO.COM LIVE Check in Friday, October, 30 at 11AM ET / 8AM PT. Join us as Sam reveals how COVID-19 interfered with their writing process and why Smith flipped the album’s original title, To Die For.

The last two years have culminated into a creative bloom for Smith. Talking with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Sam revealed how the record created a cathartic experience. "I feel super emotional about it because... the last two years have been a really, really mad time of experimentation, of finding myself with my gender expression, with so much that has happened the last two years,” they said.

“It's captured in this music."


It was through that writing process Sam gained the courage to reveal his non-binary gender identity. That means Smith changed their pronouns to “they/them.” Sam tells Apple Music the change has been difficult for everyone, including themselves. “It kind of ruins conversations. It ruins moments. It's really difficult. So, I've had to just go into myself and try and deal with it in a real kind way and patience, and just know that everyone's working on this. It's going to take time,” Smith revealed.

“We're changing a language here. So, I'm trying to be patient with it."

We’ll also dig into their recent steamy collaboration with Demi Lovato on the music video for “I’m Ready.” We’d love to find out how Sam nailed those wrestling mat dance moves!
