This may be the first time you’ve heard of Sam Smith, but it’s unlikely to be your last. An unsigned soul buzzmaker hailing from the UK, the artist showcases his talent for soaring balladry on the newly-released Lay Me Down. Disclosure & Jimmy Napes craft a lush, piano-led instrumental that slowly picks up steam as Smith pours out his heart to the woman he loves, building to an explosive, string-drenched climax. This record is neither a single nor part of any larger project, but y’all know the drill: if you like what you’re hearing, simply keep your browsers locked on our front page for all the latest from this promising newcomer.
