Tom Petty Releases Statement on Sam Smith Songwriting Issue: 'These Things Can Happen'

Tom Petty has released a statement concerning the Sam Smith songwriting incident that took place earlier this week.

Tom and his collaborator Jeff Lynne noticed that Sam‘s song “Stay With Me” was similar to their hit “I Won’t Back Down,” and it was decided that Sam would pay them royalties.

“Let me say I have never had any hard feelings toward Sam. All my years of songwriting have shown me these things can happen. Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by,” Tom wrote in a statement on his website. “How it got out to the press is beyond Sam or myself. Sam did the right thing and I have thought no more about this. A musical accident no more no less.”

Sam Smith Will Pay Tom Petty Royalties for 'Stay With Me'

Sam Smith has agreed to pay the legendary singer Tom Petty royalties from his song “Stay With Me.”

The decision came after Tom and his collaborator Jeff Lynne noticed that the song was very similar to their song “I Won’t Back Down.” They reached out to Sam‘s reps and both teams came to an agreement amicably.

“Not previously familiar with the 1989 Petty/Lynne song, the writers of ‘Stay With Me’ listened to ‘I Won’t Back Down’ and acknowledged the similarity,” Sam‘s rep said in a statement to Billboard. “Although the likeness was a complete coincidence, all involved came to an immediate and amicable agreement in which Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are now credited as co-writers of ‘Stay With Me’ along with Sam Smith, James Napier and William Phillips.”
