Vocalist Sam Smith made an impressive debut on Disclosure's 2012 single "Latch", Smith's impeccable vocals carrying a potent forcefulness and yearning. On his official first single as a solo artist, "Lay Me Down", Smith teamed up with Disclosure again; although the song's vibe isn't as upbeat as the last time the artists teamed up, the production is light and highlights, rather than overshadows, Smith's powerful voice. In turn, Smith sounds soulful and sweet, asking, "Can I lay by your side, next to you, and make sure you're alright?" Rooted in traditional American soul and gospel, the result is a love song that sounds as equally spiritual as it does romantic. - Pitchfork
