is a pillar of consistency at Australian radio.

The UK star’s brand new single ‘How Do You Sleep?’ is another example of why, bringing dreamy, palatable pop hits to the table each and every time.

‘Sleep’ takes the listener on a musical journey typical of many Smith singles: smooth production to build the track, culminating in a complete showcase of Smith’s vocal mastery.

Max Martin is a credited co-writer on the track, along with Savan Kotecha and ILYA.

Smith’s newfound freedom as an artist is being seen on the charts of late: “This year, both personally and musically, I feel so free,” he affirms.

Previous singles ‘Promises’ and ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ peaked at the summit within two months of each other on the TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.

The last artist to achieve this was Justin Bieber whose feature spots on DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m The One’ and Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despecito (Remix)’ went back-to-back in 2017.

The new release is accompanied by an official music video directed by Grant Singer and choreographed by Parris Goebel.
