Sam Smith: I want my albums to sound like romantic novels
Sam Smith wants his albums to feel like a series of "romantic novels".
The Grammy Award-winning singer is currently working on his sophomore record, following the success of his debut 'In The Lonely Hour' in 2014, and has revealed his ultimate "aim" is to create a body of work that resembles a "romantic film".
The 23-year-old star wrote on Twitter: "I want my albums to be like a series of books. Romantic novels haha.
"Then all together, one day, it will make a romantic film. Hopefully with a happy ending. That's the aim haha. (sic)"
Sam revealed in July that he's already started writing material for the new album and has a clear idea of its "concept".
The 'Lay Me Down' hitmaker shared: "I'm already writing. I feel like I've already got the title to the album; I've got the concept to the album."
Sam explained he finds it easier to make music once he's decided upon a central theme.
He said: "I work in terms of concepts. When I find the thing I want to write about, I actually go out and physically do it.
"It sounds really weird, but when I knew that the album was going to be called 'In the Lonely Hour', I think I subconsciously started being lonelier. I feel like once I've got that concept of what I want to do, I start physically doing it so I can write music about it."
