Music video by Sam Smith performing Lay Me Down. (C) 2015 Capitol Records Ltd.
Pop crooner Sam Smith may have had to give Tom Petty a co-writing credit on his biggest single, but he's pressing ahead with a new video for a different song: "Lay Me Down."
The clip for this towering ballad begins with a funeral, as Smith emotes in front of a congregation holding candles. There's a rather abrupt shift in tone, as the video switches to footage from a wedding before culminating in a more sombre solitary event. Impressively, all this is done without any obvious cuts, as it appears to have been filmed in one shot. It was directed by Ryan Hope. -- Exclaim!
