Sam Smith Opens Up About ‘In The Lonely Hour’: “It’s About A Guy”

fc5ae0d9ca584bb664a68bee5cc8df6e Sam Smith Opens Up About ‘In The Lonely Hour’: “It’s About A Guy”

Sam Smith has avoided talking specifics about his love life. Around the time he won BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll, he confessed that he had never been in a relationship before. And with his new video for “Leave Your Lover” (off his 2014 debut In the Lonely Hour), he is shown caught in a love triangle, being affectionate toward the female but also eying the other male in the relationship – a storyline that only raised more speculation. He’s finally answered to that, point blank.

In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back,” Smith says to The FADER, adding, “I told him about it recently, and obviously it was never going to go the way I wanted it to go, because he doesn’t love me. But it was good as a form of closure, to get it off my chest and tell him.”

Smith now feels at peace with the situation, hence why he’s decided to open up. But he also says that, “unless it’s a musical form,” he doesn’t intend on talking about his personal life throughout his career. “In the short time I’ve lived on this Earth, all I’ve seen are boxes. People put things in boxes; it makes it easier to digest information. People say I’m the new Adele. Why is [gender] a talking point?” he says, adding, “It shouldn’t be an issue, but it will always be an issue.”
