Sam Smith - I Feel Love (Visualiser)

“As a queer person, ‘I Feel Love’ has followed me to every dance floor in every queer space from the minute I started clubbing,” Sam wrote on Twitter.

“This song to me is an anthem of our community and it was an honour and most importantly so much fun to have a go at it.”

They added: “Highest song I’ve ever f*****g sang. But a joy. I hope you all like it.”

Earlier this year, Sam Smith released the song 'How Do You Sleep?', alongside a dance-heavy music video directed by Grant Singer.

Their last album, The Thrill of it All, came out in 2017, with fans hoping that these one-off tracks may be leading up to a brad new release.
