Published Mar 25, 2014UK singer Sam Smith's upcoming In the Lonely Hour LP has unfortunately been pushed back in Canada from its previously announced May 26 street date through Columbia Records to June 17, but the singer is imploring us to stick around a little bit longer by unveiling a tender teaser track for the set called "Stay with Me."
Unlike the bounce of earlier single "Money on My Mind," "Stay with Me" strips away modern pop production to put the focus on minimalist piano melodies and the humbled, honeyed vocals of Smith. Here, he weighs in on trying to extend a one-night stand into something more substantial. Taking a hold of the subject's hand, he tries to make sense of the relationship and pleads for the other half of the equation to "stay with me."
Whether or not the musician was ultimately successful, you can hear him make his bid for the everlasting love by streaming the song down below.
