How Do You Sleep?

Sam Smith

Album No Information

“How Do You Sleep” is the latest single from British pop musician Sam Smith, and a track that is a new sound for Smith.

“How Do You Sleep?” heavily features an electro-pop style sound but still maintaining a love ballad theme about moving on. Smith questions himself and a relationship in the track, realising it isn’t right and that he doesn’t trust the lover. Rolling Stone described the song as a “pop ballad about trying to move on”, which coincides with what Smith stated in a press release: “This year, both personally and musically, I feel so free. More than ever I have had so much fun making this record and this video…”.

The music video for the track was released on the same day as the track – July 19th. Directed by Grant Singer, it features smith and a group of shirtless male dancers dancing in lit up areas, as well as Smith being dragged around a set to different locations and singing in a circus style environment. The dance was choreographed by Parris Goebel. As of the end of July, the video has almost 43 million views in the space of a week and over 1.4 million likes.
