'Money On My Mind' hitmaker Sam Smith has admitted he will use his heartbreak to inspire the songs for his next album

Sam Smith will use "sad" dating failures to inspire his next album.

The 'Money On My Mind' hit maker is penning tracks for his second album - the follow-up to his successful debut 'In The Lonely Hour' - and he admitted he'll have no shortage of stories of heartbreak to draw on for the LP.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, he said: "Honest songs make the best songs in my opinion. Whether they're sad or happy, they've just got to be truthful and relatable.

"I can always find reasons to be sad in life. So I'll have plenty to inspire the next album. I've been dating and stuff, which is great so I'll definitely be talking about that on my new material."

The singer - who is openly gay - also admitted he has struggled to meet potential lovers and even wishes fans would flirt with him to make it "easier".

He added: "I haven't met the one yet. And no, I don't have fans propositioning me ever. But I wish I did. That would make things a lot easier. I'm afraid that just hasn't happened."
