Smith’s first two singles, “Bad Day All Week” and “When It’s Alright,” were independently released (both were released prior to 2010). In October 2012, when Disclosure dropped “Latch,” Smith was introduced to a much wider audience than before. It featured Smith on vocals and reached number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. Due in large part to the success of that track, he quickly rose to international stardom.
Released as a single in 2013, “Lay Me Down” is taken from his first full-length album of the same name. In the same year, he appeared on Naughty Boy’s top-charting single in the UK, “La La La.” Capitol Records issued Smith’s first full-length studio album, titled “In the Lonely Hour,” in May of 2014. It shot straight to the top of the UK Albums Chart and the second spot on the US Billboard 200.
The album did so well that it was 2014’s second best seller, behind only “1989” by Taylor Swift. After that, in 2014, Smith embarked on their first ever North American tour as headliners. The band’s first performance in the United States came on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” in January of that year. Smith then made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” in March 2014, where he and his bandmates sang “Stay with Me” and “Lay Me Down.
” After that, in February 2015, Smith sang “Stay with Me” on the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. In addition to winning Best New Artist, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year (for “Stay with Me”), they also took home Best Pop Vocal Album at the Grammys (for “In the Lonely Hour”).

Smith collaborated with lyricist Jimmy Napes to release “Writing’s on the Wall” in September 2015 as the theme song for the 24th James Bond film, “Spectre” (2015).
It was the first James Bond theme to hit No. 1 in the United Kingdom, where it had massive success. Smith won the Golden Globe and Academy Awards for Best Original Song in 2016 for “Writing’s on the Wall.” Though he didn’t drop any new songs in 2016, Smith did provide a lot of behind-the-scenes footage of his band’s recording sessions. Smith’s latest single, “Too Good at Goodbyes,” came out in September of 2017.
It reached the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in its first week of release and the top spot in the UK. The Thrill of It All (2017), Smith’s second studio album, arrived in November of the same year. This is Smith’s first No. 1 album in the US, and it also debuted at No. 1 in the UK, where it has been widely praised. As of March 2018, Smith was on The Thrill of It All Tour, making dates in Europe, North America, Asia, New Zealand, and Australia to promote his latest album and get
the word out about the record’s release. Single “Pray” (March 2018) features American rapper Logic, and Smith’s 2018 releases also include the song “Fire on Fire,” which can be found on the soundtrack for the miniseries “Watership Down” (2018). In August of 2018, he was the featured vocalist on “Promises,” a song by Calvin Harris.
