Sam Smith’s New Single ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’ Races to No. 1 in U.K.

Sam Smith has been really quiet for the past year but has made a comeback track which has made it to the top of the charts in the U.K.

The British singer’s “Too Good at Goodbyes” (Capitol) comfortably holds the top spot on the midweek chart where it displaced  Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” (Warner Bros).

Written with Jimmy Napes, “Too Good At Goodbyes” is his first release since 2015’s “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre, which became the first James Bond theme song to hit No. 1 on the UK Chart.

In Amazon’s behind-the-scenes series Smith revealed the inspirations behind his first single

“This song is — I’ll be very open about it — it’s about a relationship I was in in 2016. I basically got dumped about three times. And on the third time that everything ended, I had got so good at walking out the door that I kind of knew what to do, and I had a tick box in front of me of all the things I would do to get over this person.”

He also added that the bigger inspiration for the singer’s upcoming second album was Aretha Franklin’s 1971 cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

The ballad is deep and intense and sooner than you think you will have this song on repeat.
