Surprisingly, or not, when 2014 soul-singer-slash-rock-star Sam Smith gives you a peek into his world in his new music video "Restart," you get none of these things. Instead of flashbacks to trashed hotel rooms, mirrored tables, and smashed guitars, you get cheerful vingnettes of tour bus life, festival performances, beach excursions, and record store trips.
