Get out your tissues and warm up your singing voices, Sam Smith fans, because the song bird of our generation is officially back! Smith just announced the name and release date of his new album, and fans are freakin' their freaks. The new album, The Thrill Of It All, will be out Nov. 3, 2017, via Capitol Records. Oh yes, I knew it was going to be a good year for music. Now fans are wondering, is Sam Smith going on tour?
The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind near Sam Smith. The artist and blue-eyed beauty announced his North American dates for The Thrill of It All Arena Tour, and it's coming summer of 2018. It can't get here soon enough!
A 24-hour ticket pre-sale for fans will begin Oct. 11, 2017, at 10 a.m. local time via Sam Smith's official website. The general public can purchase tickets October 12 at 10 a.m. local time. Not only will fans be purchasing a concert of a lifetime, those who buy their tickets online will get a copy of Smith's new sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All. New music and a Sam Smith concert? Sign me up.
The Thrill of It All album includes 10 new songs: "Too Good at Goodbyes," "Say It First," "One Last Song," "Midnight Train," "Burning," "Him," "Baby, You Make Me Crazy," "No Peace (feat. YEBBA)," "Palace" and "Pray." The deluxe edition also includes four additional tracks: "Nothing Left for You," "The Thrill of It All," "Scars" and "One Day at a Time." Smith collaborated with songwriting partner Jimmy Napes, as well as Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd, Malay, Stargate, and Timbaland. I have a feeling this album is going to blow our minds.

Smith has been in the news lately over his rumored relationship with 13 Reasons Why star, Brandon Flynn. The two are adorable together and Smith appears happier than ever. The singer is having a great year with music success and with love. Get it.
Smith's album will probably be heartbreakingly beautiful considering, "Too Good At Goodbyes" was perfect. I still listen to that song and cry a little. I love you, Sam! See you on tour.
