Singer Sam Smith admits to being "insanely single".
"This song (his new single - 'Too good at goodbyes') is about me and about a relationship that I was in," the Grammy and Oscar winner said during an interview on Beats 1 station, reports people.com.
"I'm still very, very single. I think I'm even more single than I was when I released 'In the Lonely Hour' (his debut album), 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," he added.
Smith said he is more optimistic, both in his love life and songwriting.
"I do feel like I'm ready for something more positive, more than I was," the star explained.
"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."
But Smith says his forthcoming album is "not all about me".
"There's about four songs that are about me and the rest are about different things and different people in my life and what they've gone through," he said.
"Different in my opinions on different things. I wanted to welcome people back in and I want it to be about my voice and about the storytelling of something that I've gone through."
Smith confirmed that his next album will be released this year before Christmas.
