‘Gloria’ (pre-order/pre-save here), which follows on from Smith’s third album, 2020’s ‘Love Goes’, has already been previewed by the Kim Petras-featuring single ‘Unholy’.

Posting the official ‘Gloria’ cover art on social media, Smith said they were “overjoyed” to share details of the album.

“I’m feeling overwhelmed and emotional as I start to let go of ‘Gloria’ and hand this work over to you,” the singer explained.

“It has been magical in every way to make this piece of music and by giving this record to you I am giving you part of my heart and soul. ‘Gloria’ got me through some dark times and was a beacon for me in my life. I hope it can be that for you.”
