Following the return of the UK singer-songwriter earlier this year, with his song Too Good at Goodbyes opening at number one on the ARIA and UK charts it was announced that his much anticipated sophomore effort, The Thrill of It All will be released worldwide on November 3 of this year.

However, it was Writing’s on the Wall for the James Bond soundtrack Spectre which solidified his super star status, with the single earning him a Golden Globe and and an Academy Award.
The Thrill of It All already has been teased as being one of the biggest records of the year, and sees’ Smith collaborate with producers like Timbaland, Malay and Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd, as well as Jimmy Napes and Stargate.
