Cam Calls Recalls 'Magical' Co-Write with Sam Smith

Cam is dipping her toes in pop music waters.

The “Diane” singer co-wrote “Palace” for Sam Smith’s sophomore effort The Thrill of It All. Cam explains the collaboration came to be thanks to mutual friend Tyler Johnson, who wrote for both Cam’s and Sam’s new records.

“There was something really magical about that,” Cam says of the co-write, “and it doesn’t always happen. But when you get in the room and everybody can be comfortable with each other and you have the same... it kind of feels like you have to have the same values; you have the same heartache or something that mirrors in each other, and it comes out so much more real than if you write with someone and it’s forced.”

She goes on to describe the partnership as “very real,” adding she’s listened to their collaboration, for which she also provided backing vocals and played guitar, “a million times.”

Before her country career took off with her smash debut single “Burning House,” Cam also co-wrote a song for Miley Cyrus’ 2013 record Bangerz.

Cam’s latest single “Diane” is available now.
