After an interview with Zane Lowe for “Apple Music 1”, the artist Sam Smith announced his new album, the artist is very critical and committed to the fight against homophobia and discrimination in his native country.
The interview began with enthusiasm, and after three years of waiting, the artist is back with a new album titled “Gloria“.
The interpreter has commented this album as a struggle, a way to open up and evolve in all aspects, being an album that reflects his ups and downs, problems and struggle since he declared himself a non-binary person, as well as some other positive aspects of his life, such as his friendship with Ed Sheeran, the famous interpreter of “Perfect“.
Thus, Smith explains that “I was an isolated gay kid in a small town. I didn’t experience certain things growing up. I remember just with the bullying at school and stuff, I was avoiding certain places in my head. Even in terms of my career, the idea of being famous or well-known, or being a successful singer, was what was going through my head. It was like saying ‘fuck you’ to the kids at school, the way to get my power and my voice back. And I nurtured it.”
Thus, the artist has been grateful to his audience and his music, and adds that “I almost don’t believe that music manages to save me over and over again, it’s incredible”.
With this, Sam has not hesitated to talk about his personal and professional life, including the love and private aspects that we all did not know, and hopes this album not only to vent, but also to help people who have gone through or are going through the same thing.
