Sam Smith surprises fans at Spotify listening party trends now

Sam Smith appeared in good spirits when they surprised fans at a listening party for their new album Gloria at The Windmill on Tuesday night. 

The non-binary singer, 30, who goes by the pronouns they/them, wore a cardigan and jeans for the fun night out as they celebrated their latest musical offering. 

Sam was sporting platinum blond hair for the night out as they gave a talk and hugged delighted fans who had no idea they were going to be in attendance.

The superstar wore nothing under their red and white patterned cardigan and jeans and completed their look with Timberland boots. 

The outing comes after Sam said it's a 'shame' that there are no women nominated for the Best Artist at the BRIT Awards.  

The Unholy hitmaker was one of the first musicians to call for the ceremony to be 'reflective' resulting in organisers making the event the first major UK awards to abolish gendered categories.

But Sam still thinks there is a 'long way to go' after the shortlist for this year's prestigious prize only featured male nominees.

Couldn't agree more: Sam said there are a lot of female artists who should have made the shortlist, instead of just Harry Styles, Stormzy, George Ezra, Central Cee and Fred Again being left to contend for the prize

Sam said there are a lot of female artists who should have made the shortlist, instead of just Harry Styles, Stormzy, George Ezra, Central Cee and Fred Again being left to contend for the prize.

Asked which women should have been shortlisted, they said: 'Cat Burns. Anne Marie. Florence Welch. There's so much incredible female talent in the UK — they should be on that list.'

They said: 'Things are moving forward, but it's obvious it's not there yet. From seeing that [best artist] list, there is still a long way to go'.

'It's incredibly frustrating. 'It feels like it should be easy to do'.

In 2021, the BRIT Awards announced it would be abolishing its male and female categories, in bid to celebrate artists 'solely for their music'. 

They continued: '[The BRITs] just have to celebrate everyone because this is not just about artists getting awards'. 

'Awards are for kids watching on TV, thinking, 'I can make music like this.' When I was young, if I'd seen more queer people at these awards it would have lit my heart. Awards are there to inspire.'
