UK-based talent, Sam Smith’s stand-out vocal performance on one of 2012’s biggest tracks, Disclosure’s “Latch” cemented his place as one of 2013’s most exciting artists to watch. Sam’s debut solo track, “Lay Me Down”, a heartfelt and poignant track that underlines Sam’s completely unique and powerful vocal was swiftly followed by a stripped back acoustic version of “Latch” released earlier this month. So far Sam has gathered support from Annie Mac and Zane Lowe at Radio 1 as well as receiving playlist on 1Xtra and outstanding praise from the likes of Pitchfork.
This month Sam’s profile has sky rocketed with his feature on hot producer, Naughty Boy’s #1 smash single “La La La”, which, as Sam turns 21, is currently the fastest selling single of the year!
More recently Sam Smith, who is currently featuring on Naughty Boy's number on record ' La La La', has sold out two nights at St Pancras Old Church where he debuted brand new material to a spell bound crowd and is now ready to announce a series of 4 intimate dates across the UK.

We're loving this track. The perfect start for that friday feeling. You may have heard it on the airwaves; but now we've got the video, and it's a good-un. Stunning landscape and imagery, oh and that dog?! Super fluffy.
British Super-producer Naughty Boy has just unleashed the stunning new video for his summer garage anthem ‘La La La’ featuring the gorgeously soulful vocals of Sam Smith.
Coming off the success of the hit track ‘Latch’ from Disclosure, Sam Smith is the second in an all-star cast of collaborators on Naughty Boy’s upcoming album Hotel Cabana. The video was shot by Ian Pons Jewell in the picturesque location of Bolivia and retells the classic story of The Wizard of Oz.
After causing a storm online and heading straight to the 1xtra A-list, ‘La La La’ is being released through Virgin Records on May 19th.
And if you want that dog? You'll be glad to find out that we're pretty sure the breed is called a Chow Chow and it has been cut to look like it has a lion mane.
