Pop/soul singer Sam Smith reveals a somber music video for his latest single, “Too Good At Goodbyes,” a record that follows his international breakout debut album, ‘In The Lonely Hour’ and his Oscar and Golden Globe-winning “Writing’s On The Wall,” the James Bond theme song for Spectre.
In the Luke Monaghan-directed clip, Smith puts the spotlight on relationships and friendships from all sides including heterosexuals to LGBT persons.
Written with go to collaborator Jimmy Napes, and Stargate, “Too Good At Goodbyes” continues to showcase Smith’s polished vocal range and emotive songwriting talents as he sings about a broken relationship.
“I’m never gonna let you close to me,” he sings. “Even though you mean the most to me / ‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts.”
“This song is about a relationship I was in and it’s basically about getting good at getting dumped,” says Smith. It’s been a long while since I’ve put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come.”
