Sam Smith maintains song book

London: Grammy Award-winning singer Sam Smith is putting together his favourite new songs into a notebook so he can “treasure” the ideas forever.

The 23-year-old wants to “treasure” the songs he’s been writing for the follow-up to “In The Lonely Hour”, so he’s copying his favourites into a special new notebook, reports

Alongside an image of his new pad, he wrote: “I’ve decided with this album to put it all in one notebook, and treasure it. Currently writing out the songs I’ve already done that I love. This is exciting.”

“Ever since I started writing songs, from the age of 12 (my first song I wrote was called ‘Yellow hat’ – don’t ask) all the lyrics and ideas I’ve ever written have been on random bits of paper and phone notes that I wish I still had to look back on,” he added.
