Sam Smith – Drowning Shadows | New Music

Sam Smith


Sam Smith delves into a depressing, lonely place with his new song “Drowning Shadows”. It debuted on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 radio show on November 2 and will feature on Smith’s upcoming reissue of In The Lonely Hour (which can be pre-ordered on November 6). Described as the “saddest song I’ve ever written”, “Drowning Shadows” details a lonely, alcohol-fueled Smith searching for someone to fill the void in his heart.


He tells an old story of leaving the studio and having to choose between going home or heading to a gay club by himself to try his luck. What’s especially tragic is that either option sounds lonesome. “Do I go home to nothing or stay out for more? / Give in to someone or lock down my door?” he sings woefully.
