Subject: Sam Smith

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/07/15 at 10:08 am

Singer Sam Smith has told fans on Twitter he's got to have surgery on his vocal chords next week.

The 22-year-old singer had to pull out of his Australian tour after doctors found a haemorrhage on them.

Smith tweets: "I am very upset to announce I have been battling to get my vocal cords better the last 10 days but unfortunately they haven't recovered and I'm going to need surgery."

The Stay With Me singer said he was "gutted" to be missing more shows, but that doctors had told him he should be back on stage in six to eight weeks.

Sadly, that means Radio 1's Big Weekend in Norwich is off the cards too.

Because he sings with his throat that's why! If he sung with his chest, he wouldn't be damaging his voice!

Sam Smith says he can now speak again and is ready to go back on tour after his vocal cord operation.

The singer posted on Instagram: "I CAN SPEAK AGAIN!!!!!!!!" with a picture of Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

He also shared a photo of the doctor who helped him to reclaim his voice and publicly thanked him.

Four performances that he had to postpone in April after having problems with his voice have now been announced in Australia.

Sam Smith says he's "so relieved" that he can speak again following his vocal cord surgery.

He told the Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw he couldn't talk for three weeks.

"It was horrendous. It was so bad. But I got through and everyone's been so amazing about it, so thank you."

The singer had to pull out halfway through his Australian tour in April after suffering haemorrhages on his vocal cords.

He cancelled several more concerts, as well as his planned Radio 1 Big Weekend appearance in May.

A hearty congrats to Sam Smith whose debut album has notched up a record-breaking 67th consecutive week in the Official Albums Chart Top 10 - the longest unbroken run ever for a debut album.

In The Lonely Hour hasn't been out of the top 10 since its release in May 2014.

The previous record was held by Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events, which marked 66 weeks in the top 10 in 2013.

Before that it was The Beatles' Please, Please Me's record 62 consecutive weeks, 49 years earlier.

Smith said he was "completely and utterly moved and overwhelmed".

"This moment is one to tell the grandkids and maybe their grandkids," he added.

Reactions to Sam Smith's theme song for new James Bond film Spectre vary widely following its unveiling earlier on Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 breakfast show. Former Bond actor Sir Roger Moore called Writing's On the Wall "very haunting and wonderfully orchestrated". But other Twitter users have been less complimentary, with one describing it as the "worst Bond theme ever". BBC entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson said it was "good enough, but not a classic". The song, whose full version runs for 4 minutes and 38 seconds, begins with the words: "I've been here before / But always hit the floor."

Personally I do not like it!
