Sam Smith is helping us get festive with their newly released Christmas song ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’. It’s a slow but stunning holiday single that comes with an animated video.
The song was written and produced by Labrinth, who also produced Smith’s ‘Love Goes’, the title track off of their new album.
“If any year could make me look forward to the sounds of Christmas, it would be 2020 as more than ever before we are yearning to be around our friends and family once again,” said Sam Smith.
“Christmas symbolises that for me and earlier this year I was inspired to write a Christmas love song. Labrinth and I poured our hearts into this one and it has honestly been pure joy to create and make.”
Sam Smith’s album Love Goes arrived late last month. Originally slated for release in June as To Die For, the album was delayed and changed up due to COVID-19.
Smith apologised for the wait and said, “But these unprecedented times gave me the room and space to fall in love with these songs all over again.”
“After it all, I still believe love is the answer. And with love in our hearts and kindness in our words and actions, we sing on,” they said.
