JAMES BOND THEME SONG OUT NOW
(Toronto, ON) – On Friday November 6, global popstar Sam Smith will release In The Lonely Hour: The Drowning Shadows Edition via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. This extended version of his chart-topping album includes a second CD of new and exclusive tracks, highlighted by “Drowning Shadows”, co-written by Smith and Fraser T. Smith and produced by Jimmy Napes and Steve Fitzmaurice.
“Drowning Shadows” elegantly opens the second disc of the extended edition and is a stripped back, heart-wrenching ballad that debuts Sam’s impressive vocals over cascading strings and piano. The Drowning Shadows Edition also includes Sam Smith’s breath-taking covers of Amy Winehouse’s “Love Is A Losing Game” and Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know?” alongside collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Mary J Blige and John Legend.
It was also recently revealed that Smith is the latest in an illustrious line of iconic artists chosen to contribute the theme song for a James Bond film – and the first British male solo artist to do so since 1965. “Writing’s On The Wall” is out now and will accompany the forthcoming Bond outing, Spectre.
Sam Smith approaches the end of 2015 in celebratory style, having sold over 9 million copies worldwide of his debut album In The Lonely Hour. Sam has speedily leapt from newcomer to international superstar, along the way earning four No.1 UK singles, four Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, six MOBO Awards, GQ’s Solo Artist of the Year, Q and AMA Awards as well as a 2015 Juno Award for International Album of the Year.
