A song that we have been loving this week and that has been getting a lot of international attention since its release is Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me”.
Sam’s smooth vocals, which you might recognise from his feature on Disclosure’s track “Latch” are stunningly beautiful, and although this track is a bit mainstream, it is a good listen. The gospel chorus and heartbreaking melody will connect with anyone lovesick listener, as Rolling Stone’s Mike Powell commented “If ninth-graders still made mixtapes for their crushes, this would be on all of them” (2014).
Keep an ear out for Sam’s new album In The Lonely Hour which will be released 26th May 2014.
Listen Here to my favourite remix of the track by Rainer + Grimm:
