I wonder why this song was picked as the "gift". Is it because he thinks it explains himself, or because he thinks it's the best one?

The „ best“ one should be the first single. I remember pictures from that studio session. The song was written and recorded in April last year.
I will simply go with Adam’s explanation, that the song describes the emotions, that he was going through at some point. I haven’t heard it, but if it has the rather personal lyrics, that some fans have quoted already, then I do understand, that this is a song, that he rather shares with his fans instead of releasing it as a single.

That was my feeling too, sounds like he's wanting to explain why things have taken so long and let the fans know what he was dealing with.

Can you share those lyrics you have come across? I'd really like to read them.
Going by his letter, it does seem he will be more introspective.

I will give you the link. I can’t say, if the lyrics are correct or complete, because I haven’t listened to the song yet. So I won‘t quote them here.

You‘re welcome.

Besides, Adam’s co-writer Benedict Cork is a very old friend of Sam Smith. They know each other from school and come from the same village.
Adam met Ben last spring in LA, liked his work and so they collaborated on this song. Ben himself released is first EP last summer. He‘s a very young talent and accomplished piano player. His first single got high praise from Elton John on some British radio station. He sings and writes beautiful ballads, that are worth to check them out. :)

I didn't know he was a friend of Sam's, I thought he was a friend of AL's only. Small world!

I believe, he’s much closer with Sam than with Adam. If you scroll through Ben‘s or Sam‘s Instagram accounts, you‘ll find pictures of them every once in a while. Usually in groups of old friends. Ben‘s older sister Suri is often with them. She represented the U.K. at last year‘s Eurovision Song Contest. The world is small. ;)

I will take your word for it, no worries. I just remember Cork being mentioned more with AL than Sam. I actually feel like somewhat of a bad fan of Sam's since I had no idea about him and cork being friends :oops: . All good though.
I can't help but wonder I'd Sam and AL have ended up working together for AL's upcoming music. I guess anything is possible.

Adam’s new song „Feel something“ is out! I‘ve been listening to it for the last hour. I think, it’s a beautiful little song. :)

(If you can’t see it yet, it will be released in your country at midnight (Feb. 22nd).)

Is it a ballad, Nicki? Tell me more :whistle:
I have seven hours to go until I can hear it.

It is. :) Quite emotional, but not in a depressing way. Adam’s voice is front and center, but very gentle. It’s different from everything Adam has done before. Comes closer to Sam Smith in a way.

Icy,

Try this one. Sounds like a Sam Smith reject so I’m sure our friend is going to hate it. :lol: Not a bad song but nothing special, better than his EDM shit.

Yeah, the link didn't work. Guess I will have to wait.
Sam Smith? Ok, I'm even more interested now.
