Smith names come­back record af­ter fam­ily home

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Sam Smith has named his come­back record af­ter his fam­ily home. The 25-year-old singer - whose de­but al­bum 'In The Lonely Hour' was re­leased in 2014 re­cently un­veiled a mys­te­ri­ous 'TPH-50HR' tat­too on his chest while film­ing the video for his lat­est sin­gle and it has been re­vealed as a ref­er­ence to where he grew up. Ac­cord­ing to the Daily Star, it stands for The Pink House 50 Hey­don Road, Sam's child­hood home. A source said: ""Sam has cho­sen the ti­tle as the ul­ti­mate trib­ute to his par­ents Fred and Kate and sis­ters who have al­ways sup­ported his dream. "They never once tried to dis­suade him fol­low­ing his dreams, so it's a very per­sonal record." Mean­while, Sam re­cently re­vealed he can't stand his sin­gle, 'Money On My Mind', though he be­lieves most of the tracks from his first LP are "clas­sic". He said: "There's a few songs I re­ally hate, but then the core of the al­bum, songs like 'Stay With Me', 'I'm Not The Only One' - ac­tu­ally all the songs ex­cept 'Money On My Mind' - I re­ally love and I'm re­ally proud of the clas­sic-ness of the way they sound, be­cause I still listen to them now and I still love them. "There are a few mo­ments [on the al­bum] where I think to my­self, 'I would have changed that. I would have done that dif­fer­ently'." The star also ad­mit­ted he had a "panic" about the mu­si­cal di­rec­tion he should take on his first record due to the pop­u­lar­ity of 'Latch', a dance track by Dis­clo­sure which he fea­tured on in 2012. He said: "As soon as 'Latch' had a lot of suc­cess in the UK, my la­bel and me had a lit­tle bit of a panic. "We were like, 'Maybe we should be do­ing dance?' And that's what I can hear on [my first] al­bum - there's two or three songs where I can hear the lit­tle wob­ble, but the rest of the al­bum is what I set out to make from the be­gin­ning. "But I still love my al­bum, but I'm lov­ing my new one more."
