If you didn't know who Sam Smith was two weeks ago, you probably know now. Not only did the British vocalist perform on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, but he just sang on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night. On top of that, he's featured on three songs that are currently on the chart: Naughty Boy 's "La La La," Disclosure 's "Latch" and his own song "Stay With Me." All that should get you excited to buy his debut album, which arrives June 17.
The disc, In the Lonely Hour , is now available for preorder, and you'll get free downloads of "Stay With Me" and "Money on My Mind" when you do. You can also catch Sam on tour: He plays L.A. on April 15 and 16, San Francisco on April 17, Chicago on April 22 and Toronto on April 23.
Sam may be up-and-coming here, but he's already a star in his native U.K., where he's scored two #1 hits, won the 2014 BRIT Critics' Choice Award and topped the BBC's Sound of 2014 poll.
