Sam Smith – “Money On My Mind”
Last week I was out here calling the young British soul singer Sam Smith our next Jeff Buckley after hearing his dumbfounding demo “Not In That Way.” For his latest song, which for whatever reason is being touted as his debut single, he’s back to the club-crushing theatrics he first displayed as the vocalist on Disclosure’s breakout hit “Latch.” This new jam is called “Money On My Mind,” but the title is a fake-out; it’s all about how Smith doesn’t have money on the mind because he does it for the love. It’s a sleek and propulsive metropolitan soul number you could imagine Cee Lo Green performing far less gracefully. Listen below and be glad Smith got his hands on instead.
The “Money On My Mind” single isn’t out officially until 2/16/2014, which seems like a lot of lead time for a song that’s already online, but hey, we’re just happy it’s here to hear right now.
