Sam Smith is "insanely single".
The 25-year-old singer - who previously dated actor and model Jonathan Zeizel - has admitted he has been unlucky in love recently, and says he's "more single" now amid the release of his new single 'Too Good at Goodbyes' than he was when he dropped his debut record 'In The Lonely Hour' in 2014.
Speaking about his new track, he said: "This song is about me and about a relationship that I was in. I'm still very, very single. I think I'm even more single than I was when I released 'In the Lonely Hour', so I'm insanely single. People are gonna see ... this one as I've said is about me and something that I've gone through."
And the 'Stay With Me' hitmaker is ready to move on from his heartbreak, as he says his experiences have made him "stronger" and is now "ready for something more positive".
He added: "I do feel like I'm ready for something more positive, more than I was. What I've been through relationship wise the last year has made me a lot stronger and I feel like I've learned some lessons from it."
The 'Writing's On The Wall' singer took an extended break from social media in 2016, and although he has returned to Twitter on the odd occasion, he says his time away allowed him to appreciate valuable moments with his family.
When asked what he's been up to during his break by Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio, Sam said: "Just getting on the same page as my family and friends again. My fame and what happens when you become well known really scared me. I became very distant to my family and friends just because our lives weren't relatable. So, that was really tough for me. When I'm not close to my family I freak out and I'm just not the best person I could be.
"For it to not be about me for one year was absolutely wonderful. I was there to see my god daughter be born, I've been at every single birthday for my mom and my dad, sister and my cousins, my best friends. I'm there for down days and their good days. My sister's graduation, I was there for both of them. It was incredible."
