Smith wore jeans, a yellow shirt and a matching yellow blazer with furry cuffs. The British singer is in the Big Apple preparing for a high-profile performance this weekend on Saturday Night Live.
According to Page SixCowan also accompanied Smith when they got a new tattoo recently.
Smith enjoyed vacation time in Thailand and New South Wales over the holidays. An artist from Australia’s Markd Tattoos’ yesterday posted an image of Smith visiting to get new inkwork. Cowan was also with Smith.
“At first I didn’t believe it when I got an email saying that Sam Smith would like a tattoo from me,” said the tattooist. “Even on the day I thought it was just a hoax… One of my proudest moments as a tattoo artist!”
Cowan also accompanied Smith to the White House in December. Smith was performing to mark the occasion of President Biden singing the Respect For Marriage Act.
Smith enjoyed the biggest hit of their career with last year’s duet with Peter Kim‘Unholy’. Last week, the nonbinary singer dropped a new track, ‘Gimme’, with Koffee and Jessie Reyez.
