Red Nose Day 2015: Sam Smith and John Legend release Lay Me Down single for Comic Relief
Sam Smith has recorded a special version of his single Lay Me Down with John Legend for this year’s Comic Relief Red Nose Day show.
Sam Smith recorded the single in Los Angeles with John Legend earlier this year.
They will perform the ballad during Comic Relief: Face the Funny on Friday, March 13, on BBC One.
The one-off performance will be broadcast live from the London Palladium.
A digital download of the special track has been released ahead of their performance.
Sam Smith said: “Lay Me Down holds a very special place in my heart.
“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.”
John Legend said: “Sam is such a talented artist. We’ve been looking forward to working together for a while now.
“I’m so glad we could collaborate on such a great song and for such a great cause.”
All the profits from the sale of Lay Me Down will go to Comic Relief.
