Sam Smith Reveals He's Dating 'Like I Can' Video Extra

It's no longer the "lonely hour" for Sam Smith.

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter, who nabbed six Grammy nominations earlier this month, revealed in an interview with The Sun that he's dating an extra he met on the set of his latest video, "Like I Can."

“It’s very early days. I’m talking very, very, very early days," he told The Sun, via Towleroad. "But he’s really sweet…he was one of 20 extras. It’s a surreal thing to be talking about because I haven’t even confirmed with him that we’re officially seeing each other."

Fans of Smith's melancholy tunes needn't fret too much, though.

"The reason I do what I do is because I’m an artist who is always going to be blue about something," Smith, who came out publicly this spring, was quick to add.

As 2014 comes to a close, Smith has a lot to celebrate. Earlier this fall, he was named Breakout of the Year as part of Out Magazine's annual OUT 100 list. His Grammy-nominated album, "In The Lonely Hour," was just certified platinum, boosted by smash singles "Stay With Me" and "I'm Not The Only One."
