Sam Smith shared a cover of Coldplay‘s “Fix You” on Sunday (July 5), more than a month after giving a live performance of the song during the iHeartRadio Living Room Series.
“Thank you @Coldplay for writing such a beautiful song,” Smith wrote alongside a brief clip that featured the cover version of the song.
“I love this song, and as soon as I heard it I was just reminded again of how much of a classic it is,” Smith said of the cover before performing the song in May. “I’ve never actually seen Chris Martin perform this live, but I really want to, because I’ve fallen in love with this song after singing it.”
Smith said they have been singing so many different songs that are not their own, sitting at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Smith, who said they didn’t get tested but felt they’d “100 percent” had the coronavirus, released a collab with Demi Lovato, “I’m Ready,” in May.
In March, they announced the decision to push back the release of their third album, To Die For, from the originally scheduled release date of May 1, because the title “doesn’t feel right.”
“I have to come to the decision to continue working on the album and make some important changes and additions,” Smith said. “I will be renaming the album and pushing back the release date – both of which are to be confirmed at this time.”
