Bri­tish singer Sam

Smith (above) will take some time off from the spotlight be­fore he starts work­ing on the fol­low-up to his 2014 al­bum, In the Lonely Hour. “I’m go­ing to take a mas­sive break to­wards the end of the year I think ... just be­cause I want to re-gather,” the 23-year-old Grammy win­ner said on a ra­dio show.

The Lay Me Down singer, how­ever, has al­ready started writ­ing songs for his high­lyan­tic­i­pated al­bum, and said: “I’m al­ready writ­ing. I feel like I’ve al­ready got the ti­tle of the al­bum; I’ve got the con­cept of the al­bum.”

Smith added that he to­tally sub­merges him­self in the con­cept, and knows what he wants for his next al­bum. “I work in terms of con­cepts. When I find the thing I want to write about, I phys­i­cally do it. It sounds re­ally weird, but when I knew that the (pre­vi­ous) al­bum was go­ing to be called In the Lonely Hour, I sub­con­sciously started be­ing lone­lier ... so I can write mu­sic about it,”

he said.
