Sam Smith to drop third album To Die For this May

Sam Smith came through with a one-two punch this week.

In the past year, Smith, 27, told their legions of fans on social media that they changed their pronouns to the gender non-binary they/them.

Reiterating the singer's sentiment, co-host Jaime claimed that Valentine's Day was "invented by the card industry" for profit, as Amanda said it was Clintons who created the holiday.

"It's nearly given me permission to kinda do what I've always dreamed of doing but I was always scared to do, which is pop music", they told the Zach Sang Show at the time. I'm over it. It's offensive. Today's a sad day. The singer's set to release the LP's title song on Valentine's Day and has already been amping up the excitement for it, so their reveal touched on the fervor surrounding the impending drop. It's more like a funeral'.

Over on Heart Breakfast with Jamie and Amanda, Sam added: "Look I don't want to be a Debbie downer but this isn't my favourite day".

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1, Sam said: 'What's hard is people changing their vocabulary; that's very, very difficult. 'I do think like a woman sometimes, in my head.

Last year, the 27-year-old singer came out as non-binary, telling fans: "I've decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I've chose to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out". "Everything she does I think is fantastic". Awarded four stars by Rolling Stone, the album included the hit single "Too Good At Goodbyes", which recently became Smith's second song to receive over a billion streams on Spotify, after "Stay With Me".

"I understand there will be many mistakes and mis-gendering but all I ask is you please please try".
