Lil Nas X has revealed that he plans to give his Sam Smith collaboration "Empathy" an official release.

Following the release of his debut album MONTERO last week, Lil Nas X has revealed that he does plan to release a Sam Smith collaboration that didn't feature on the album.

The Sam Smith collaboration, titled "Empathy", was first teased on socials at the start of the year, but didn't end up appearing on MONTERO.

Last night (21 September), following his debut Live Lounge performance for BBC Radio 1, which saw him cover Dolly Parton's "Jolene", Lil Nas X answered some questions as part of his #askMONTERO Q+A. One fan asked, "any plans to release Empathy with Sam Smith officially? It’s a BOP." Lil Nas X replied, "yes it’ll most likely come with a music video."

Elsewhere, Lil Nas X also seemed to confirm that a deluxe version of his debut album is onn the way. In response to a fan asking about an update on an unnamed song, Lil Nas X responded, "the song isn’t finished yet but it will most likely be on the deluxe...i love it so much."

He also confirmed that CD and vinyl versions of MONTERO will be coming out in the future.

Lil Nas X's debut album MONTERO is out now.
