Sam Smith Releases His Saddest Song Yet

Milk Crater will jump at any chance to aid and abet the world’s obsession with all things Sam Smith. To that end, enjoy Sam Smith’s latest masterpiece, “Drowning Shadows.” Many songs find their perverse beauty tucked behind the darkest hours of an artist’s life. This would seem to be the case for Sam Smith’s latest release.

As Pigeons and Planes notes, “The song itself is about an actual choice Smith would make after recording between going out on his own to clubs and trying to find love or staying at home.”

“Drowning Shadows” will be featured on the special edition of In The Lonely Hour set to release this Friday, November 6.
