New Music Friday: Zayn and Sam Smith
Happy Friday, everyone! This week we’ve got new music. Today’s highlights are new singles from Zayn Malik and Sam Smith. The Brits released new music just one day apart. Zayn’s song “Dusk Till Dawn” features Sia and an action packed video. It seemed like Zayn had been focusing on fashion lately, appearing on the cover of Vogue and promoting his upcoming clothing line called Zayn X Versus Versace. But unlike Smith, this newest single isn’t Malik’s first of the year. The former One Direction member released “Still Got Time” in March. The song featured Canadian singer and rapper PARTYNEXTDOOR.

Sam Smith’s song “Too Good at Goodbyes” marks the singers return after almost two years. Throughout 2016 Smith shared glimpses of his travels and time spent working on new music. His song “Writings On the Wall” was the theme song for the James Bond film, Spectre and the last new music we got from the singer back in September of 2015.
Social media blew up last week when he released a statement telling fans that new music was coming very soon. Just after the song released at midnight this morning, Sam took to Instagram live to thank fans and even a few celebrity friends who jumped on the stream. He also said that he was excited to perform the song live and that in rehearsals things have been sounding really good. That sounds like a good sign!

Honorable mention to actor and singer Michael Malarkey (The Vampire Diaries, The Oath). He released his debut album Mongrels today. I’ve heard it’s pretty awesome and can’t wait to check it out.
