Sam Smith’s ‘Lay Me Down’ Video Is A Heartfelt Visual on Marriage Equality

Sam Smith Lay Me Down Video

Sam Smith debuted the music video for ‘Lay Me Down,’ off “In The Lonely Hour,” on Thursday. This was the lead single from his album and it has finally gotten the video treatment. In the visuals Smith gets married in a church among his friends and family. It’s a statement and a world that Sam Smith hopes to live in soon. ‘Lay Me Down’ was the first time we got a chance to hear Sam Smith over two years ago [watch]. Listening to the original clip still gives us goosebumps to this day,

In a statement on his Facebook page, Smith explained the concept:

Dear All, Here is the Link to the LAY ME DOWN music video. This song holds a very dear place in my heart. With this video myself and Ryan Hope the director have decided to make a statement and showcase something we passionately believe in. This video shows my dreams that one day gay men and women and transgendered men and women all over the world, like all our straight families and friends, will be able to get married under any roof, in any city, in any town, in any village, in any country. I hope you enjoy it. I love you all x
