Originally entitled ‘To Die For’, Smith’s third LP was set to be released on May 1, but the singer-songwriter later confirmed it will be pushed back and the album title will be changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.Advertisement
“I have done a lot of thinking the last few weeks and feel that the title of my album and imminent release doesn’t feel right,” they said.
“I have come to the decision to continue working on the album and make some important changes and additions.”
