"Lay Me Down holds a very special place in my heart," Smith said. "Not only did I perform it at the Brits, I’m now going to perform it live on the Red Nose Day show with the extremely talented John Legend, which is so exciting."
Smith added: "I recently visited a Comic Relief-funded project in my hometown which supports the young LGBT community in London."
John Legend had a few words about the project as well, saying:
"I’m extremely proud that my single will help raise money for projects like this and many others in the UK and across Africa," said Legend. "Sam is such a talented artist. We’ve been looking forward to working together for a while now."
Universal said it will donate all profits from the sale of the single to Comic Relief, so be sure to buy it on iTunes!
Both singers are incredibly talented in their own right, but together they create a unique soulful slow-jam - all for a good cause.
