Are you ready for the Sam Smith comeback of 2017? You're not the only one.

The Grammy-winner, who last dazzled fans in 2015 with the release of Bond theme "Writing's on the Wall," sent an email blast to fans that all but confirmed new music's coming soon.

“First of all I want to say thank you,” he began. “Thank you for being so patient and for letting me have the past year to really escape into my mind & write music so freely. I feel so rejuvenated and have so many stories I can’t wait to tell you.”

“The wait is so nearly over,” he added. “Something is coming very very very very soon. I am scared & excited at the same time. I’ve poured my soul & heart into this record.”

In July, Smith gave fans the impression a comeback was looming when he posted a series of photos to Twitter that seemed to indicate he was shooting a music video. That he was with music video directors Luke Monaghan and James Barber seemed to provide some compelling evidence.
