Sam Smith once again proves his reign as “King of Heartbreak” with his brand new song “Burning,” which goes in on the after-effects of a break-up.
He said the song is about his intent to self-destruct and the 25-year-old also went on to say he was an “absolute mess” when he penned the heartbreak jam after struggling for weeks to cope with a terrible break-up and the overwhelming pressures of fame.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1 after premiering the debut following days of teasing he said: “I’m so ready for people to hear that song. I was going through a really tough time last year. I live in London and I went through a break up and I dealt with it in a bad way and I was going out way too much and I was burning in a way.”
