The past 18 months have been kind to one Sam Smith. After collaborating with Disclosure on their breakthrough single “Latch”, Smith signed to Capitol Records, topped BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll, won the 2014 Critic’s Choice BRIT Award, and even shared the stage with Taylor Swift. The R&B crooner knocked off another career milestone last night with his Saturday Night Live debut, performing sultry renditions of “Stay With Me” and “Lay Me Down” from his upcoming album In The Lonely Hour. For his performance of “Stay With Me”, he was accompanied by a string orchestra and backing choir. Watch the replay below.
In The Lonely Hour is due out May 26th.
