Wow! Not only has the re­turn of Sam Smith re­sulted in a manic rush for tick­ets to his two live shows, we’ve been swamped with en­tries from de­voted fans in­tent on get­ting a taste of his new CD — the aptly named The Thrill Of It All.

It’s no won­der — af­ter first ris­ing to fame af­ter fea­tur­ing on Dis­clo­sure’s smash hit Latch, Smith has gone from strength-tostrength since the re­lease of four times plat­inum (NZ) de­but al­bum In The Lonely Hour, which con­tained the sin­gles Lay Me Down, Money On My Mind, Stay With Me, I’m Not The Only One and Like I Can.

Then there was the James Bond theme Writ­ing’s On The Wall which won an ar­ray of awards in­clud­ing an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, three Brit Awards, three Bill­board Mu­sic Awards and four Gram­mys — among oth­ers!
