Sam Smith just debuted his brand new song “Drowning Shadows” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show.

“[It's] the saddest song I’ve ever written and probably the least radio-friendly song I’ve ever written,” the 23-year-old entertainer said on the radio show about the song. “I thought of it recently when we were thinking about the repackage, and we went in and just did it with piano.”

The song will appear on the deluxe version of In The Lonely Hour, which will be out on November 6.
