In a statement shared to social media, Smith said that ‘love goes’, which is due out Friday, October 30, was written across the past two years.
“The last two years have been the most experimental time of my life, personally but also musically,” Smith wrote.
“Every time I went to the studio I promised myself I would shoot for the stars and have no limitations. The result has been so magical and so therapeutic and FUN.”
“My love for music is so broad and all of my musical guilty pleasures became pleasures,” they continued.
“No guilt, no shame, just the love of singing and creating and dancing.”
“I have done a lot of thinking the last few weeks and feel that the title of my album and imminent release doesn’t feel right, so I have come to the decision to continue working on the album and make some important changes and additions,” they said at the time.
