Sam Smith - Writing's On the Wall

Sam Smith has confirmed the title for his new single.

The British singer/songwriter – born Samuel Frederick Smith – christened “Writing’s on the Wall” as his next promotional cut.

Co-written and co-produced by Jimmy Napes along with regular collaborators Stephen Fitzmaurice and Disclosure, “Writing’s on the Wall” is also the main theme for the upcoming James Bond film “Spectre.”

Smith recently co-penned “Flashlight” for fellow UK artist Jessie J along with Australian songbird Sia. The Greg Kurstin-produced track appears on the original motion picture soundtrack, “Pitch Perfect 2.”

Furthermore, he provided guest vocals on Disclosure’s single “Omen.” The Napes-assisted track is included on the UK electronic music duo’s second LP, “Caracal,” out on September 25 through PMR Records and Island Records.

Smith’s debut studio collection, 2014’s “In the Lonely Hour,” peaked to number two on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned hit singles including “Money on My Mind,” “Stay with Me” and “I’m Not the Only One.”

Meanwhile, fans of Napes’ songwriting / production work should look out for the next releases by Kwabs [Atlantic], Ellie Goulding [Interscope], Alicia Keys [RCA], Raye [Polydor], Karen Harding [Capitol] and Eliza Doolittle [Parlophone].
