Sam Smith is hardly hiding his excitement over his career's next era — the "Too Good at Goodbyes" singer announced very early this morning (October 6) that he's dropping a new album on Nov. 3, and a huge tour will follow.

Smith, who also released a new single — the gospel-tinged "Pray" — said his sophomore effort is called The Thrill of It All, and is now available for pre-order.

"My beautiful fans, I am so so excited to finally share this news," Smith wrote in the tweet above.

Smith, who'll serve as musical guest on Saturday Night Live's next episode, said in a series of August tweets that he's feeling particularly inspired to embark on his career's next chapter.

"Thank you for being so patient and for letting me have the past year to really escape into my mind & write music so freely. I feel so rejuvenated and have so many stories I can’t wait to tell you.”
