Sam Smith admitted he was "very naive" in assuming the public would love his Spectre theme song Writing's On The Wall.

The singer (23) said that he felt very confident about the 007 track before it was released but quickly realised he could not please everyone.

Smith said recording the song "felt like a dream come true for me, but I was very naive about the whole thing, because I love the song, so much, still love it."

He said he felt buoyed after his parents and friends said they were fans. "I was feeling really confident about it - but when I released it, I was very naive and I thought everyone would love it. But Bond, it's impossible for everyone to like a Bond song," he said.
