Gloria, the singer’s fourth studio album, was released on Friday and marks the first LP they have released in three years.
It was dropped after almost a year of public preparations by Sam, who released his first single “Love Me More” in April 2022.
The Money on My Mind songwriter then took TikTok by storm with her viral hit single Unholy featuring German-born US singer Kim Petras.
The track peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the couple’s first song to reach the couple’s top spot.

The outing comes after Sam revealed on Friday they were spat on in the street after being revealed to be non-binary.
The Grammy winner changed her gender pronouns to her/her in 2019 and said she wished they had done it sooner, but was also open about the shocking backlash.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, the pop star revealed that while there have been no issues with her new gender identity in her private life, she has been harassed since she first appeared on the streets of England.
‘It’s crazy and exhausting’: The pop star recently revealed that she was spat on in the street after coming out as non-binary and changing her pronouns in 2019
They explained: “I think the only negative aspects of the fight were my public life and my job. And just the amount of hate and horniness that came at me was just exhausting.
“It was on the damn news. Someone spat at me in the street. It’s crazy. What I find difficult about that is when this happens to me and I’m famous, I’m a pop star, can you imagine how other kids, like queer kids, feel?
“And it’s just so sad that we’re in 2023 and it’s still happening. It’s exhausting and especially in England.’
Candid: Speaking to Zane Lowe (pictured) on Apple Music 1, the singer discussed how he should change his gender pronouns to her/them in 2019
Sam added: “So we really have two sides. My private life and then my public life. And in my private life there is nothing negative.
“My family, they can communicate with me. They always did. But they communicate with me even better now. My love life has gotten better because of it. I feel lovable. I’m comfortable in my own skin, but I wear what I want to wear.
“Ever since I changed my pronouns, it felt like coming home. I wish I knew what the words were when I was in school because I would have identified with them in school. Because that’s who I am and always have been.’
Sam also recently said it was a “shame” that there were no women nominated for Best Female Artist at the BRIT Awards.
The Too Good at Goodbyes singer was one of the first musicians to call for a “thoughtful” ceremony, leading to organizers making the event the first major UK awards to abolish gender categories.
But Sam still believes there is still a long way to go after being shortlisted for this year’s prestigious award, which features only male nominees.
Sam said there are many female artists who should have been shortlisted rather than just Harry Styles, Stormzy, George Ezra, Central Cee and Fred Again having to compete for the award.
When asked which women should have been shortlisted, they replied: “Cat Burns. Annemarie. Florence Welch. There is so much incredible female talent in the UK – they should be on this list.”
They said: “Things are moving forward, but it is obvious that things are not there yet. Of seeing that [best artist] List, there is still a long way to go’.
“It’s incredibly frustrating. It feels like it should be easy to do.
