Sam Smith Shows Off His Moves In 'How Do You Sleep?' Video


Sam Smith is kicking off the weekend with a brand new song, “How Do You Sleep?”

“I’m done hating myself for feeling / I’m done crying myself awake,” he sings. “I’ve gotta leave and start the healing / But when you move like that I just want to stay.”

The video, directed by Grant Singer, features Smith and a group of shirtless male dancers choreographed by Parris Goebel. (“My inner dancing queen is about to come out,” Smith tweeted last week.)

“This year, both personally and musically, I feel so free,” Smith explained, in a release. “More than ever I have had so much fun making this record and this video. Time to dance darling.” 

Early Friday morning, the British singer said he was reading early reactions to the video on social media and “freaking the f**k OUT!!” Smith added: “This feels like the day I came out.” 

When the video debuted, he tweeted: "My heart is beating so fast. I'm so proud of this one. Thank you to all the beautiful humans who've helped me really come out my shell over the past year. I hope you all enjoy this & please learn the moves so we can dance together soon.”

“How Do You Sleep?” comes on the heels of “Dancing With Stranger” featuring Normani, and Smith’s collaboration with Calvin Harris, “Promises.” The singer’s most recent album was his 2017 sophomore collection The Thrill of It All.
