They addressed the delay as well as the name change on a letter posted on their Instagram account.
"I am sorry it's taken awhile, but these unprecedented times gave me the room and space to fall in love with these songs all over again," the Grammy-winning singer apologized. Sam Smith became popular when they were featured in songs "Latch" by Disclosure and "La La La" by Naughty Boy.
