Sam Smith - Like I Can

  • Artist: Sam Smith
  • Track: Like I Can
  • Producer: Napes, Fitzmaurice & Mojam

One month after earning Booth acclaim for his A$AP Rocky assisted remix of I'm Not the Only One, UK soul hitmaker Sam Smith returns to our front page with a freshly-selected single off his blockbuster studio debut. Similarly to Smith's previous hits, Like I Can deals intimately with the topic of unreciprocated love. Over a melancholy, yet driving instrumental by Napes, Fitzmaurice and Mojam, the singer lets the object of his affection know just how dep his feelings run, and laments, “Why are you looking down all the wrong roads / when mine is the heart and the salt of the soul?” For more poignant cuts, cop Sam Smith's In the Lonely Hour LP, available now in stores and online.

Edit: We've updated this post with Like I Can's newly-released video, which comes courtesy of director Sophie Muller.
