Sam Smith's sophomore album The Thrill of it All arrives today and the singer joined forces with James Corden on a new installment of Carpool Karaoke. Smith appeared on The Late Late Show segment ready to sing some new material, old favorites and he also brought along four special guests.
The ladies of Fifth Harmony crashed Sam's joy ride to sing along with "Work From Home" and Sam could barely contain his excitement. He sang old favorites like "I'm Not the Only One" and his new single "Too Good at Goodbyes." Corden also got Sam to open up about his love life.
"I want a funeral for my single self before my wedding," he joked about his fantasy wedding. "I'm in a coffin, and there's a PowerPoint presentation about my single life... and then I rise from the coffin, and then everyone takes off their black clothes and they're wearing white. And then the wedding begins."
Smith suggested that Fifth Harmony's "Work From Home" would play an integral part in his future wedding ceremony. "'Work From Home' - I listen to every time before I go out; I think it’s my wedding song," he said. "I want to walk down the aisle to it in heels." Moments later, Corden pulled over and the four members of Fifth Harmony hopped in the car. The sequence came to an end with a group sing-along to "Work From Home." "This is my dream," Smith said.
Meanwhile, as his fans were awaiting Sam Smith's sophomore album, The Thrill of It All, the singer was a bundle of nerves. Smith took to social media yesterday to thank his fan base for their continued support during the journey that went into the making of the new set. "I'm sitting outside my house in London having a coffee, and I'm freaking out because the album is out tomorrow. But I'm so excited for you to hear it," says on the Twitter voice recording. "I've poured my heart and soul into every single line, and I just really wanted to take this time as well to say thank you. Thank you for giving me that year and a half to be at home and write this album. Thank you for letting me do what I do every day." "I hope you like it," he adds. "Please be honest if you don't. But be kind at the same time. I don't think my heart could take it."
