LISTEN: Sam Smith Releases ‘The Writing’s on the Wall’

So, after all the hullaballoo, what’s the new Sam Smith Bond theme for Spectre actually like? Well, it’s big. I mean really, really big. And slow, and mournful. And big.

Sam Smith Thanks His Ex for Grammy Wins

This was not a weekend of surprise awards decisions, but nor was it a weekend of unsatisfactory ones either.
