Sam Smith recently teased the announcement of his long-awaited sophomore record with the release of lead single "Too Good at Goodbyes," and now the UK crooner has unveiled full details for the upcoming album. Titled The Thrill of It All, the LP is due out November 3 via Capitol.
It marks the follow-up to Smith's 2014 debut In the Lonely Hour. The standard album comprises 10 songs, though the singer has also revealed a 14-track deluxe edition. See the full tracklisting below. The album is available on vinyl and special edition CD via Umusic.
The album was recorded with Smith's longtime collaborator Jimmy Napes, though it also features additional production work from the likes of Timbaland, Malay, Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd and Stargate.
The latest single to arrive is a Timbaland-produced cut called "Pray," and you can stream it down below right now.
