Sam Smith Disses Radiohead Frontman Thom Yorke; ‘I’m Not Going To Lie’

Sam Smith

Crooner Sam Smith seems to have no idea who Thom Yorke is. Based on a latest report, the young singer allegedly disses the veteran rock star.

Smith won the Best Original Song for “Writing’s on the Wall” on the recent Golden Globe Awards. The song is also the official soundtrack of James Bond film “Spectre.”

But Smith was kind of unaware of the “Creep” hitmaker when asked about his insight about the band’s song “Spectre,” which was supposed to be the movie soundtrack as well.

“The British singer asks his collaborator Jimmy Napes who Thom Yorke is after a reporter asked him about Radiohead’s unused ‘Spectre’ song that they released last month,” quotes Ace Showbiz.

Later on, he told the truth to the reporters: “Not going to lie, a little bit surprised, but I haven’t listened to it personally because I did the ‘Spectre’ theme song.”

It may not be dissing, but maybe he had really never heard of the band, or the song at least. Notably, Sam Smith’s “Writings on the Wall” reaches the top on the U.K.’s singles chart.

On the other hand, Radiohead released the song as a Christmas present to their fans, explaining that they love it despite the fact that it did not work out for the film.

“Last year we were asked to write a tune for Bond movie ‘Spectre’. Yes we were,” Yorke revealed in some Twitter posts. “It didn’t work out… but became something of our own which we love very much.”

In other James Bond movie news, Daniel Craig refuses to return on the next film.

“Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on,” quotes Time Out. But the film producers are still persuading him to do back to back films.

Will Daniel Craig finally return as Agent 007? Find out soon.
