She’s Back! Emeli Sandé Returns With New Single “Sparrow”
Edit: The post has been updated with the stunning video for “Sparrow,” which was directed by Sarah McColgan and filmed in NYC.
Emeli Sandé arrived in a blaze of glory in 2012, racking up hit after hit with anthems like “Read All About It,” “Next To Me” and “Clown.” The Brit then made chart history when her debut LP, Our Version Of Events, sold more than 2.3 million copies in the UK alone. It was always going to be hard to match that success with her sophomore effort and Long Live The Angels failed to make the same impact. Which is a shame because songs like “Hurts” and “Breathing Underwater” were quality.
After taking a little break, Emeli is back and ready to reclaim her throne as the UK’s go-to balladeer. She will introduce her third LP with a new single called “Sparrow.” It arrives tomorrow (March 15) and promises to be an emotional affair based on the lyrics she shared with fans. “We got magic in our bones just like the stars, we’re gonna shine bright and are golden,” she sings on the chorus. “With the heart of a sparrow tell me what arrow could ever bring you down?” See the cover art and listen to the soaring anthem below.
