Sam Smith goes all gospel for his second taster of his upcoming album, “Pray.”
It hasn’t even been a month since Smith released The Thrill Of It All‘s lead single, “Too Good At Goodbyes,” but the star is ready to give us more new material.
We felt that “Too Good At Goodbye” was too similar to his previous ballads, it didn’t really separate itself from the rest of his back catalogue, which is good for fans – not so much for career improvement.
“Pray,” on the other hand, keeps the stylings that we all love from the British singer, but is soaked in a new kind of gospel sound that he’s dabbled in before – but here, he’s turned to epic meter up to full.
“TGAG” might be a number one single, but for us personally, we’d have loved this to have been his lead single – come out of the gate with a bang, not a whimper.
