October 30, 2017 - 6:30am

Sam Smith is back at it again with yet another brand new song called "Burning. The track is the third to be released, following lead single "Too Good at Goodbyes" and "Pray," off of the 25-year-old's upcoming sophomore album The Thrill Of It All, set to be released on November 3rd.

"It's the most personal song I've ever written in my life," he said during an appearance on BBC Radio. "I was going through a really tough time last year. I live in London, and I went through a breakup. And I dealt with the breakup in a bad way, and I was just going out way too much."

The piano-driven torch song is about the aftermath of losing a lover. Smith said that music is his therapy, but it took him six weeks to get to the studio after the breakup.

"I let everything go in that song," Smith said. "And that song to me is about fame as well and the responsibilities I felt and the pressure and my relationship with my voice and how I was a bit rebellious last year. ... It's about self-destruction, that song."
