2012 is turning out to be quite a year for the amazing Emeli Sandé. Confirmed as the winner of the prestigious Critic’s Choice Award and nominated for British Breakthrough Act at this year’s Brits, the singer-songwriter has confirmed the release of her stunning new single, ‘Next To Me’, on February 13. The track is taken from her enormously anticipated debut album ‘Our Version of Events’ which will be released by Virgin Records on the same day.
‘Next To Me’ is yet another flawless pop classic from Ms Sandé, full of soaring emotion and heartfelt lyrics. At first glance it could be about a boy or perhaps be spiritual in its sentiment. In fact, says Emeli, it was written about her number one love; Music. You can listen to it right here:
‘Our Version Of Events’ is warm, wise, frank, funny, thoughtful and as inimitable as Emeli’s vertical shock of blonde hair and the Frida Kahlo tattoo that takes up most of her right arm. It promises to be a classic album from one of the most exciting debut artists we’ve seen in recent years.
