Sam Smith Pulls An Adele & Announces Planned Hiatus Following The Press Surrounding His James Bond Theme Song — Wait, What?!

sam smith confirms hiatus

Say it ain’t so!

Over the weekend, Sam Smith revealed at the CBS Radio‘s We Can Survive concert that he’ll be taking a hiatus following the massive amounts of publicity surrounding his James Bond theme song, Writing’s On the Wall.

Oh no!

He explained:

“I am sad, but also it feels right. It’s my last performance in America, and it feels right to do it in such a beautiful setting.”

Well, if anyone deserves a break it’s the Grammy winner.

He continued:

“I’ve been going now for three years nonstop and it feels right for me to just go home and just live my life and be a 23-year-old. My love life, the downs and ups, it never stops, so I’m always inspired by stuff like that, but it’d be good to spend some time dating.”

Well that’s fair. We’re just hoping he doesn’t pull an Adele and go MIA for 3 years.


Though, we shouldn’t be entirely shocked by this announced break since the British cutie was forced to take some time off earlier this year after he had to undergo surgery on his vocal cords. Yikes!

Nonetheless, the hitmaker still has music on the brain as he shared that he was still working on his sophomore album.

He noted:

“I have been writing a little bit. Already I have a little bit of a direction of what I want to say and what I want to do and the sound, how I want things to sound, but there’s a long way to go.”

Well that’s good at least. Here’s hoping this vacay away from the spotlight is only short lived.

Fingers crossed.
