It’s been a great year so far for Sam Smith, and by the looks of it, it’s only going to get better.
The 22-year-old British singer is taking over radio, winning critics over and is about to release his album, In The Lonely Hour, which is about as solid of a debut as you could get.
Fresh off his performance at Bonnaroo, the singer stopped by “Good Morning America” on Monday (June 16), to perform his single, “Stay With Me,” which is currently sitting at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and was given a warm welcome by his biggest fans.
“It’s unbelievable and America has been surprisingly so amazing. I thought it would come a lot further down my career, but you guys are so amazing and I love being here,” Sam said. “The crowds here are a little bit better than the U.K. crowds, which I shouldn’t say.”
The MTV Artist To Watch also took to Twitter during the show to answer some fan questions, revealing that he loves hazelnut and pistachio ice cream, his favorite color is navy blue and that he’s already started work on his sophomore album.

But first things first, Sam has to release his debut on Tuesday before he really dives into his sophomore album.
“I’ve just been very honest on this album and just poured my heart into it and just said way too much,” he said about his first solo effort on “GMA.” “And that’s it really.”
