Sam Smith‘s ready to embrace the thrill of it all, not excluding dual senses of gender identity.

The “Too Good at Goodbyes” singer, whose sophomore album will drop in a few short weeks, told The Sunday Times in a new interview that his gender identity doesn’t feel exclusive to one thing, and that he has a history of blending lines with fashion. He noted that he visits drag shop House of Priscilla every time he’s in Sydney, and that he never leaves dissatisfied.

“Oh my God, I just buy everything — heels, dresses. We have a great time,” he said. “I love a heel. I’ve got loads of heels at home…People don’t know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn, and all that. There was one moment in my life where I didn’t own a piece of male clothing, really. I would wear full make-up every day in school, eyelashes, leggings with Dr Martens and huge fur coats — for two and a half years.”

Smith said more generally that the choices in garb indicate a broader sense of self.

“I don’t know what the title would be, but I feel just as much woman as I am man,” he said.

The Thrill of it All is due out November 3.
