Single review: Sam Smith – Stay With Me

Single review: Sam Smith - Stay With MeSam Smith’s soul and gospel inspired Stay With Me is a beautifully simple yet grand mid-tempo piano ballad that incorporates sparse percussion and even a Memphis-style choir.

Crooning to his mystery muse, Sam Smith implores that he wants nothing more than for her to (predictably) stay with him. While the subject matter isn’t the most soul searching of stuff, it is neat arrangement and minimalist production that really makes the song.

The addition of Sam’s genuine vocals bring the whole thing together, augmented by the swelling American church style choir during the choruses.

A very neat and appealing track, Stay With Me is the lead single from Sam’s upcoming début album “In The Lonely Hour”, due for release on June 17th.
