Sam Smith: 'I've already started writing next album'

By
Sam Smith has revealed that he has already started work on his second studio album.

The singer - who released his chart-topping debut album In The Lonely Hour back in May - explained that he has laid down plans for the follow-up as he doesn't want to feel unprepared.

Sam Smith press shot 2014.

"I'm a complete control freak so I've already decided on the artwork and title to the album, which will change obviously," Smith told Digital Spy

"I think I will always be so scared on not doing this as a career, so the thought of just sitting back and enjoying the ride, and then late next year someone going, 'Right, now we need to do [a] second album,' and me not knowing what the f**k to do... I couldn't do that."

Smith added: "I did my first writing session a few weeks ago. I feel like I've already got a possible song, which I love. I've got a title, which I think I love.

"I don't know what I want to talk about yet, y'know. I'm not in a relationship, but I'm dating. But I don't know if I want to pressure myself to get into a relationship to write an album, so there's loads of options."

Sam Smith will play the Virgin Media V Festival at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex later today (August 17), after performing at the Weston Park site yesterday.

The star's new single 'I'm Not The Only One' will be officially released on September 1.
