Sam Smith – The Lighthouse Keeper
Sam Smith presents a brand new single titled “The Lighthouse Keeper.” The new song was written in partnership with Labrinth it is unlike anything Sam Smith has produced before. It is a throwback to the 1940s, a song with a story of a Christmas reunion. The result is an unusual mix of sombre anthem and a gentle lullaby, with classical-style choral backing and soft strings. The Christmas theme is subtle; the reference “home for Christmas time” doesn’t come until the end of verse two.
The accompanying music video is a charming animated cartoon with a theme of departing and taking risks, but returning to love and safety. The credits attribute the direction to Sam Smith.
