Sam, who came out as non-binary last year, is set to release the fourth single from the album, 'To Die For', on Friday (14 February).

Dedicated to "all the lonely hearts out there" the Jimmy Napes and Stargate-produced track is a heartfelt ballad featuring soaring strings, mellow piano, and even a sample from 2001's cult film drama Donnie Darko.

'To Die For' follows the release of recent singles 'Dancing with a Stranger', 'How Do You Sleep' and a cover of Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love'.
