Sam Smith and John Legend duet on Lay Me Down for a very special Comic Relief 2015 track.


Sam Smith and John Legend recorded the single in Los Angeles earlier this year and produced a video for Comic Relief for the special track.

The pair will also perform the single together one time only live from the London Palladium for Comic Relief on March 13, BBC One.

Sam Smith said: “Lay Me Down holds a very special place in my heart,” he said. “Not only did I perform it at the Brits, I’m now going to perform it live on the Red Nose Day show with the extremely talented John Legend, which is so exciting.

“I recently visited a Comic Relief-funded project in my hometown which supports the young LGBT community in London. I’m extremely proud that my single will help raise money for projects like this and many others in the UK and across Africa.”
