Sam Smith is no longer single.

The 25-year-old singer revealed during an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that he is off the market.

“I’m not [single], which is crazy,” Smith told DeGeneres. “It’s weird bringing out an album and not being single. Because when I brought ‘In the Lonely Hour,’ I was so lonely. But now I’m singing songs about another guy, but I’m quite happy so it’s quite weird.”

He was spotted with “13 Reasons Why” star Brandon Flynn, 24, in New York City in October causing speculation that the two were dating. The pair enjoyed lunch together before taking a walk around the city holding hands and kissing.

Smith also addressed his controversial Oscars speech. While accepting the award for Best Original Song in 2016, he mistakenly said he was the first out gay man to win an Oscar. He blamed the flub on “a hip flask basically of tequila.”

“It all started with a hip flask basically of tequila. I wasn’t happy with my performance, and we thought we had no chance of winning at all so I was just like, ‘Let’s get the party started, let’s have fun.’ Then we won and I was like, ‘Woah,’” Smith says. “I went up, and I mucked up my speech. I forgot to say ‘Best Male Actor.’ I basically said that I was the first gay person to ever win an Oscar. I obviously know I’m not but my brain and my mouth didn’t work together. I mucked up.”

“I saw Elton John and he was like, ‘I won an Oscar,’” Smith adds. “I was like, ‘I’m sorry, I was young when you won your Oscar.’”
