Iconic Song ‘Stay With Me’ Updated with New Lyric

Sam Smith has just given fans a reason to celebrate! To mark the 10th anniversary of their debut album, In the Lonely Hour, the nonbinary superstar has re-recorded their smash hit “Stay With Me,” with a meaningful twist.

In an email to fans, Sam Smith, who came out as nonbinary in 2019, announced a vinyl repress of In the Lonely Hour.

The original lyric, “But I still need love ’cause I’m just a man,” has been updated to “But I still need love, baby understand.”

“This song is truly so special to me,” Smith shared. “So for the 10-year anniversary, I re-recorded the track, which will be available on all platforms & physical. Including the updated lyric ‘but I still need love, baby understand,’ which felt really important to me.”

Smith’s announcement brought them back to the song’s origins, revealing a touching story about its creation. “When me, Jimmy, and Tourist wrote this song, none of us would’ve expected it to become what it has in the world. I will never forget Will (Tourist) playing those three chords on the piano. I stopped everything I was doing and said ‘what is that.’ Those chords and this song still stir me in the same way to this day. I’ve never once got sick of singing it. The meaning of this song changes for me whenever I sing it. The words ‘Stay With Me’ can mean a million different things and follow me throughout my life like an old friend.”
