Emeli Sandé - 'Long Live the Angels'

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

It has been four years since the release of Our Version Of Events, her debut album in 2012.

"I’ve been so impatient to share and perform new music so it feels really great to get it out there and get real life opinions back," she admitted.

During this break from the public eye Emeli's life has dramatically changed. She ended her marriage and decided to travel for the first time to Zambia, her father's country. The journey has inspired her latest work, in particular “Tenderly” a song that features her father and cousins.

“This album is really more about my reaction to the changes in my life when I stepped away from music and got to know myself,” she said. 

Three songs from the new LP have already been released.

First single “Hurts,” where she does not just open about her breakup with ex-husband but “about dealing with painful times and that was one of them.”

“Garden,” which features Ainey Zion and Jay Electronica, and “Breathing Underwater,” characterized by 90s beats and gospel chorus.

 

A giant poster with Emeli Sandé's silhouette is covering Aberdeen Music Hall on Union Street whilst under renovation. In fact, the 29-year-old singer will help to transform the venue by raising the final £1.4 million required.

She said: “The Music Hall holds so many fond memories for me, from the music festivals in primary school to my first tour.

“The beautiful atmosphere and stunning acoustics really make this a special place to perform.”

Long Live The Angels release is due on Friday November 11.
