Is singer-songwriter Sam Smith finally off the singles market?

The 30-year old Stay With Me singer was seen getting cozy with designer Christian Cowan in New York City last January 15. 

Smith was also photographed giving Cowan a kiss atop of the head as they walk arm-in-arm through Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood. Smith was wearing a yellow jacket, rolled-up jeans and Bottega Veneta lug boots.

PEOPLE has been reaching out to the British singer's rep for comment and so far, no respond yet.

Sam, who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, is set to perform as the musical guest on this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live, while Cowan opened his first flagship store in SoHo in March.

A tattoo artist based in Sydney, Australia, Markd Tattoo, also shared a photo of Smith and Cowan stopping into his studio together to Instagram on Monday, writing that he'd inked Smith with a red plant design.

He captioned: "Just casually bonding over KFC and tattoos with mega singer song-writer @samsmith and major fashion designer @christiancowan"

The pair have been close since December 2022, when Cowan accompanied Smith on a trip to the White House, where they posed for a photo with President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff.

Smith performed in celebration of Biden officially signing the Respect for Marriage Act.

Smith opened up about their dating history to British GQ in October, saying that they've "only had three boyfriends."

"All of them, equally, were just incredible teachers. And I think that now, it's definitely changed how I am in relationships, because I don't need another person to direct me to me.

"I direct them to me myself. Because I know who I am. And it's beautiful. Every single relationship is different. Every two people are different. And I think it's just learning your own language together."

The singer was previously linked to 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn. The pair split in 2018 after eight months together.

"I'm still trying to figure out what I took from that relationship and what it meant to me. It's still quite raw… Brandon was wonderful. All my relationships have ended in a nice way, never nasty."

The British-born Cowan founded his label in 2016, and told V Magazine that the goal is "all about celebrating our queer culture and club kid culture." 

Smith, a four-time Grammy winner, will release his fourth studio album Gloria on January 27. He announced this on Instagram:

"Dearest sailors ⚓️ I am overjoyed to announce that my fourth album is called ‘GLORIA’. It will be yours on the 27th January 2023, and you can pre-order now. I’m feeling overwhelmed and emotional as I start to let go of Gloria and hand this work over to you. It has been magical in every way to make this piece of music and by giving this record to you I am giving you part of my heart and soul. Gloria got me through some dark times and was a beacon for me in my life. I hope it can be that for you. Thank you for waiting so long. Only a few months now. Sam x"
