Sam Smith Plans To Say 'Goodbye For A Little Bit'

(Radio.com) British singer-songwriter Sam Smith revealed during an interview backstage at the We Can Survive concert in Hollywood on Saturday that it is time for him to take a break and step out of the spotlight for a while.

The time off will allow him to develop a new album, but not before he remembers what it's like to have a personal life. "I write songs all the time, says Smith. "Because when things happen to me romantically or in my personal life--I write music. But I'm also aware that I need to step away a little bit and rekindle some relationships with my family and my friends and just be a bit human again."

Smith explains that at the end of the year, likely following his SNL performance with Disclosure and any holiday concert commitments he has, he intends to take a break and step out of the spotlight. "I think I'll be saying goodbye for a little bit," he says. Read more here.
