Sam Smith and Disclosure have teamed up with Beats by Dr Dre to create a new film about their hit song 'Latch'

Sam Smith and Disclosure have teamed up with Beats by Dr Dre to create a new film.

The stars - who released the Top 20 song 'Latch' - have worked on a short film to tell the story of how the track was written and became a chart hit, propelling the artists to international fame.

In the video, Disclosure gush about Sam's vocal range and joke: "I was still fully expecting Sam to be a Samantha and he was like a big female singer. He has a voice of an angel."

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter said he comes from a "whole different world of music" and admits he had no idea what electronic music was before he started working with artists like Disclosure - made up of brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence.

He explained: "I grew up listening to these classic [love] songs and they've been lost from the radio for so long, I feel like we're bringing it back."

The promo, which has already had more than 54,000 views on YouTube, is the second part of the Beat by Beat series which was launched with dance act Rudimental earlier this year, which goes behind the beat and demonstrates how some of the world's biggest artists create their tracks.

Meanwhile, Sam has embarked on a north American tour this month, playing at venues in Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco and more.
