Sam Smith has shared a stripped-back version of their recent single “Love Me More,” along with a performance video filmed in Los Angeles.
“Love Me More (Acoustic)” removes the layers of the original, putting the focus on Smith’s emotional vocals, which are only backed up by sparse piano, percussion, and gentle backing vocals. “Have you ever felt like being somebody else?” They ask on the track. “Feeling like the mirror isn’t good for your health / Every day I’m trying not to hate myself / But lately it’s not hurting like it did before.”
The performance video for the new acoustic take on the single was filmed at Los Angeles’ iconic Capitol Tower.
