Los Angeles - Sam Smith had only "2 more sleeps" until he could speak again on Monday and now the day has finally come

The 23-year-old star underwent surgery on his vocal cords last month and having subsequently been ordered not to speak, Sam hes been anxious to say his first words in the coming hours.

The Stay With Me hitmaker tweeted on Monday ro let the world know he would soon be speaking again.

Since undergoing surgery in the US, Sam has been using a female voice app that sounds similar to Professor Stephen Hawking's speaking device to communicate.

The London-born singer downloaded the software so he can still engage with his friends and family because of the surgical procedure he was forced to go undergo to to save his voice.

The news was revealed by Sam's producer Jimmy Napes, who assured the singer's fans he was making a good recovery.

Jimmy revealed: "He's doing well, he's resting up. He's got an app that speaks for him and it's like Stephen Hawking, where you type something in, except it's in a girls' voice - which is hilarious."

The producer also joked that the voice app may even make an appearance on Sam's next record.

He quipped: "It might be a little outtake on the new album."
