Sam Smith On New Album: 'I Hope You Like It'

“I hope you like it,” Sam Smith told fans late Thursday, just hours before his album The Thrill Of It All was released. “Please be honest if you don’t, but be kind at the same time. I don’t think my heart can take it.”

Smith shared the recorded message on Twitter.

“I’m so excited for you to hear it. I’ve poured my heart and soul into every single line,” he said of his sophomore album. “Thank you for giving me that year and a half to be at home and write this album.

“Thank you for just letting me do what I do every day. It means everything to me and you mean everything to me.”
