"Artists are inspired by things that happen to them and that's all this is. Stories," insists the hitmaker, reports MailOnline.
Sam, who remains open to dating any gender, recently told Apple Music's Zane Lowe they continue to be unlucky in love, sharing: "I've been searching all over the place (for a relationship)... Honestly, I've been on the frontline now for a good three years and it's exhausting." Love Goes is Sam's third studio album. It was set to be released in June, but was delayed until October due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
