Sam Smith is back with “How Do You Sleep?”, his first solo track of the year.
The British singer’s new single dropped on digital music services at the stroke of midnight, and is accompanied by a classy music video, directed by Grant Singer (The Weeknd, Lorde) with choreography by Parris Goebel.
“How Do You Sleep?” is a slick production by ILYA (for MXM Productions) over a snappy beat with Smith’s trademark vocals front and center. On it, he sings. “How do you sleep when you lie to me?/ All that shame and all that danger/ I’m hoping that my love will keep you up tonight, baby.”
Its video sees Smith lead an all-male cast of dancers for a series of eye-catching routines. It’s sexy and fun and slightly dangerous.
“This year, both personally and musically, I feel so free,” Smith said ahead of the video release. “More than ever I have had so much fun making this record and this video. Time to dance darlings.”
Staying in the dance theme, it’s the followup to “Dancing with a Stranger,” Smith’s sultry early 2019 collaboration with Normani.
