My heart is so full and happy with this news. Thank you to every single person who has got The Thrill Of It All - this is a dream come true for me, thank you.

Sam Smith's debut album 'In The Lonely Hour' was a number one hit in 2014.

That has also enjoyed a surge in the charts this week due to his second album's popularity, and is now at number 15 for its 114th week in the top 40.
