This brand new single from Sam Smith’s forthcoming debut album is every bit as heartbreakingly beautiful as I’d expect. The guy could sing pretty much anything and make it sound earnest, passionate, and emotive. This particular song, “Life Support,” makes full use of his stunning vocal range and falsetto. The instrumentation and arrangement are especially effective; there are as many understated, more hushed moments as there are moments of where the emotion and intensity soar to impressive heights.
Compared to some of his more popular songs such as “Money On My Mind,” “Latch,” and “Stay With Me,” this is on the more chill, ballad-eqsue side.
