Sam Smith might be getting a new retrospective debut album.

The gay Oscar-winner made a splash back in 2014 with his first album In the Lonely Hour.

However, it turns out it wasn’t actually his first album after all.

It has been revealed that way back in 2008, a young fresh-faced Sam Smith laid down some tracks for album ‘Diva Boy’ for Flipbook Music.

The studio apparently retained the rights to the material, and now Smith is famous it’s heading towards a public release, which Smith has no involvement with.

The first single, “Momentarily Mine”, has already been released.

A website explained: “Sam is currently an award winning global pop-star. however, it didn’t happen overnight and without a lot of work. He may have dropped out of academics but he definitely took his masters in music.

“Sam was in development and trained for success over three years with Flipbook Music, a London based Indie Label. It was at Flipbook Music that Sam’s dreams were nurtured, his, then undiscovered, talents uncovered and developed and it was there he learned his art. It’s also where he experienced all his ‘firsts’, including recording his first album, his first live and video performances and first interviews and, later on, his interviews as an informed person when he shares his views on life, love, sexuality and more. This journey was recorded every step of the way for the making of the documentary… ‘Sam Smith The Lost Years’.

“This journey was recorded every step of the way for the making of the documentary… ‘Sam Smith The Lost Years’.

“It’s easy to see how those ‘Firsts’ shaped Sam’s inevitable journey to success as we watch him emerge from a ‘teenage wannabe’ to a ‘ready-to-be’ pop star and informed person… probably the most unique footage ever seen of a global pop star in training, leading to the fulfillment of all his dreams and ambitions… and only now being made available.”
