Sam Smith has announced the forthcoming release of ‘My Oasis,’ a new track featuring singer Burna Boy.
The single will be released at 7.20pm BST on Thursday July 30.
Smith first teased the single on Instagram yesterday (July 29), posting a snippet of the song.
‘My Oasis’ follows on from Smith’s earlier releases this year. They released ‘To Die For’ on Valentine’s Day. ‘I’m Ready’, a joint single with Demi Lovato, followed in April.

Since ‘African Giant,’ Burna Boy has released a handful of singles, as well as a collaborative EP with production duo DJDS titled ‘Steel & Copper.
