Out singer Sam Smith has delayed the
May 1 release date of their third studio album To Die For.
In February, Smith, who announced last
year that they identify as non-binary, started taking pre-orders for
To Die For and released the album's title track.
Smith announced the delay on Instagram.
“Firstly, I want to send love and
strength to everyone who has been affected by this situation,”
Smith wrote, referring to the coronavirus pandemic. “I hope you are
all alright during this incredibly weird, upsetting, and
“I have done a lot of thinking the
last few weeks and feel that the title of my album and imminent
release doesn't feel right, so I have come to the decision to
continue working on the album and make some important changes and
Smith urges fans to “take care of each other” during coronavirus
Smith promised that the album, with a
new title, would arrive later this year, adding that they would
“bring out some new music over the next few months.”
