Sam Smith writes track with Frances for new album

Sam Smith has penned a track with Frances for his forthcoming new album.

The 24-year-old singer/songwriter - who took a break from the limelight in 2015 after a phenomenally successful two years with his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' - has collaborated with the 'Under Our Feet' hitmaker and former 2016 BRITs Critics' Choice nominee for his second LP, which he has been working on for the past few months.

Speaking about the song, Frances - real name Sophie Frances Cooke - said: "It was amazing. We wrote a song a few weeks ago for his second album so it was really fun."

But the 'Stay With Me' hitmaker is keeping his new material under wraps for now, as Frances revealed she is yet to hear any of his other new tracks.

She told The Sun newspaper: "He didn't have any on his phone. I'm sure I'll hear it at some point."

And Oscar winner Sam - who first came to prominence in 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single 'Latch' - previously revealed that the tracks on his new album will be "even deeper" than his first which was heavy on emotion.

He said: "I'm putting my heart even more out on the f***ing line. I'm going even deeper. I can't believe I'm even doing it, but I'm going even deeper."

Speaking of his first album, he previously said: "The core of the album, songs like 'Stay With Me,' 'I'm Not the Only One' - actually all the songs except 'Money on My Mind' - I really love and I'm really proud of the classic-ness of the way they sound, because I still listen to them now and I still love them."
