Sam Smith left the audience in awe with his performance of "Writing's on the Wall" from Spectre at tonight's Oscars.
The James Bond theme song, which was a nominee for the Best Original Song during tonight's show, perfectly displayed Smith's vocal talent, and was a life-long dream of Smith's.
"It feels like the ultimate film song. ... It was on my bucket list as my ultimate dream," he told the Associated Press on Wednesday of having the opportunity to be a part of the film.
Prior to being nominated for an Academy Award, Smith intended to take the year off. However, according to Smith, being an Oscar nominee "changed stuff a little bit."
As for his future in music, Smith intends to pump the breaks a bit before returning to the spotlight and releasing new tracks.
"I haven't got a plan to release anything as of yet, and I don't think I want to release anything for a bit," he told E! News on Monday. "I just want the music to be right, so at the moment I'm just trying to get back to a comfortable place. I'm trying to live as well a little bit, and I think next month I'm going to force myself to just stay at home and see my mum and dad and my sisters, because I feel like I've missed out on their lives a bit the last few years, so that's my plan."
