Co-written with singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, the lead single is a great pop-rock opener to the new album. Says Adams on the song “I met Ed in Dublin this year at one of his shows and we kept in touch. One day I sent him a chorus I had for a song idea I had called ‘Shine A Light’ and asked him if he was interested in collaborating on it. I got a couple of verses back a few days later, and man you should hear him sing it!”

“I’m thrilled to be releasing this new 12-track studio album, which has a good blend of rock and pop and R&B. The new album will also feature a duet with American popstar Jennifer Lopez on the future classic “That’s How Strong Our Love Is”. “Working with Jennifer was a dream, our voices sound amazing together.” says Adams.

11 JANUARY 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Today sees Sam Smith & Normani announce their joint single “Dancing With a Stranger”, released globally via Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, on Friday 11th January. Presave link to download/stream the single here - samsmith.lnk.to/dwas

“Dancing With a Stranger” is a smooth slice of sultry, R’n’B influenced pop where Sam and Normani’s vocals effortlessly glide over the production. The collaboration between the two came about through a chance encounter at the studio in LA as Sam was writing with pop legends Stargate and Jimmy Napes, Normani was in the studio next door and with both artists being long-term fans of each other it was a no-brainer for her to team up with Sam to create the new track.

Sam Smith has spent the past year travelling around the world on his tour following the release of his sophomore album “The Thrill of it All”, seeing him sell over 1 million tickets across 100 shows in 2018. “Dancing With a Stranger” is the first new music from Sam Smith in 2019 and follows on from his global hit with Calvin Harris “Promises” which stormed the charts last summer. Smith will be flying out to South America this spring for Lollapalooza before heading over to South Africa for a string of five shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

On the new single Sam Smith says, “I’m so excited for everyone to hear “Dancing With a Stranger,” which I wrote on The Thrill Of It All tour last year. For me it bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring.  It is also such a beautiful moment for me as I’m a huge, huge fan of Normani and everything she is. I’m so excited to watch her light shine. I hope everyone enjoys hearing this song as much as I do.”

Normani launched her solo career last year with her debut solo single “Love Lies” with Khalid. “Love Lies” soared to #1 at Top 40 Radio in the US and was the first single Normani released following her global success with multi-platinum group Fifth Harmony. Since then, she has gone on to release a number of new tracks including two tracks with Calvin Harris and her recent single, “Waves” feat. 6LACK. In addition to working with Calvin Harris, Khalid, and 6LACK, Normani has also recently collaborated with Quavo and Kehlani. Normani is currently working on her debut solo album and this March will see her join Ariana Grande on the North American leg of The Sweetener World tour.

Normani continues “I’m truly blessed having the opportunity to create with one of the greatest vocalists of this decade. I think about the artists that I frequently listen to daily and Sam Smith has definitely been one of them for some time now. I never thought in a trillion years that I would be able to state that I have a record with this extremely gifted being. I’m super proud to share this song with Sam and cannot wait for the rest of the world to experience it - from the first moment that I heard the song I knew how special it was. I’m deeply in love with this body of work and I hope that you all will be too. I’m so thankful that Sam put his trust in me to help him bring this song to life. To my fans, thank you for all of your continued support. I love y’all!!! I pray you guys enjoy this.”
