Los Angeles: Singer Sam Smith wants to take some time out from the limelight and is hoping that his break will give him more time to date.
"I've been playing now for three years nonstop. And it feels right for me to just go home and live my life-- just be a 23-year-old. It'd be good to actually spend some time dating I think," Smith told etonline.com.
Smith, whose first album 'In the Lonely Hour' was inspired by heartbreak, said his second record is a work in progress and there is still "a long way to go".
"I've been inspired the whole year - my love life, and the downs and ups have never stopped - so I'm always inspired by stuff like that. I have been writing a little bit, and already I've found direction on what I want to say and how I want things to sound. But there's a long ways to go," he said.
