Sam Smith takes on Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’

If you’re hoping to dance away the winter blues then Sam Smith has just what you need – a glorious cover of Donna Summer’s iconic disco hit, ‘I Feel Love’.

Produced by Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence, the track is a joyous offering which according to Sam is the “highest song I’ve ever f–king sang.”

Speaking about the song on Twitter, Sam said: “As a queer person ‘I Feel Love’ has followed me to every dance floor in every queer space from the minute I started clubbing. This song to me is an anthem of our community and it was an honour and most importantly so much fun to have a go at it…”

Guy added, “When Sam approached me about taking on such an important disco record, I have to say I was a little nervous! However, I knew we could pull it off & I couldn’t be prouder and happier with the results.”

Take a listen to Sam’s rendition of ‘I Feel Love’ below.

‘I Feel Love’ follows on from Sam’s most recent single ‘How Do You Sleep?’, which was released back in July. They also released ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ with Normani back in January, with the collaboration becoming a huge success for both artists.

Earlier today, Sam shared a video on Twitter in celebration of two years since the release of their previous album, The Thrill Of It All. They thanked their fans for their support and also raised a well deserved toast to the success of the album.

Whilst ‘I Feel Love’ is a cover, we love the new direction that Sam has taken with their music this year and we cannot wait for their highly anticipated third album.
