Sam Smith: My music is honest
Sam Smith says there won't be new music "anytime soon".
The 23-year-old British singer is lending his impressive vocals to the new Bond soundtrack with song Writing's on the Wall. But there's no news on his second album yet and the star has quashed any hopes of a fast follow-up to last year's In the Lonely Hour.
"I'm writing when I want to. So when bad things happen in my life, I'm going into the studio and writing about them!" he laughed to the British edition of OK! magazine.
"I'm excited but it's not going to be anytime soon. I think people are going to get bored of me if I carry on. I'm just trying to make it the most honest work I've ever done."
And it looks like any new tracks won't be more upbeat than Sam's previous ballads. He explains that he can only make happy music when he's in love, and he's still "a bit heartbroken" right now.
At least he has new Bond film Spectre to keep him busy for now. And to take his mind off lost loves, he can focus on the prospect of former soccer star David Beckham stepping into the role of the secret agent when Daniel Craig retires.
There have been rumours Becks is next and with a recent announcement he's moving into acting, it could happen.
''That would be interesting, that's all I'll say - that would be very interesting. He'd look fit for sure! He looks amazing in a suit," Sam grinned.
