Los Angeles: Singer Sam Smith has released the cover of Amy Winehouse's popular song "Love Is a Losing Game", which will be featured in the re-issue of his "In the Lonely Hour".

The 23-year-old "La La La" hitmaker debuted his version of the masterpiece on BBC Radio 1 program, reported Aceshowbiz.

The version is comparatively slower and haunting than the original track crooned by the soul singer.

"Sometimes people forget my age. I was 11 years old when (Winehouse's debut album) 'Frank' came out. And that album has really shaped me as an artist and my views on music and my relationship with music lyrically. Her rawness on such beautiful chords, on such expensive chords... It's just amazing," Smith said.

The "In the Lonely Hour" re-issue is titled "In the Lonely Hour: Drowning Shadows Edition".
