It seems that Sam Smith will be taking a break after he finishes promoting his theme song, “Writing’s on the Wall” for the new James Bond film “Spectre,” according to Popcrush.
The song is a pretty difficult one, apparently. “I’ve only actually sung the song once, really,” he said on The Graham Norton Show last week. “Because I did the demo in the studio, and they used that. It is horrible to sing. Horrible…It’s just so high. I have to grab my balls; it’s awful.”
But this hiatus might also just have to do with being a 23-year-old and wanting to enjoy things an ordinary 23-year-old enjoys.
“I am sad, but also it feels right,” Smith told Entertainment Tonight. “I’ve been going now for three years nonstop and it feels right for me to just go home and just live my life and be a 23-year-old. My love life, the downs and ups, it never stops, so I’m always inspired by stuff like that, but it’d be good to spend some time dating.”
Hopefully this rest will allow him to dream up a great follow up to last year’s “The Lonely Hour!”
