Sam Smith jets to Paris to write new album

Sam Smith is penning the follow-up to his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' in Paris.

The 'Stay With Me' hitmaker has flown to the French capital, which is known as the City of Love, to write his second studio album following the success of his Grammy Award-winning first offering.

The 22-year-old singer - who wrote his first record after suffering heartbreak - told The Sun newspaper he is "completely over" his old crush and is now looking for some new inspiration.

Sam's bass player Brendan Grieve tweeted: "Another amazing writing session with @samsmithworld @itsreubenjames."

While Sam is dedicated to producing his second album, he also took some time out from working in the studio to enjoy the romance capital of the world and visited the iconic Eiffel Tower.

He wrote on Twitter: "Amazing hotel room. So happy right now."

Sam recently vowed not to "hide anything" and promised complete honesty on his new record.

The star told the crowd at his sold out concert at Brixton O2 Academy in London: "I had a very broad idea of things I needed to do to become well known. And I thought that if I lost loads of weight ... then people would listen, but the truth was people only started to properly listen to me when I started being myself. And the way for me to do that through music was to be honest. This album is my diary, I've hidden nothing from anyone and I won't hide anything from anyone on my future record, my future songs."
