Emeli Sande Teams Up With Jay Electronica And Áine Zion On “Garden”: Listen
Following up her hard-hitting single “Hurts,” Emeli Sande returns with her latest track “Garden.” And she’s recruited the likes of Jay Electronica and Áine Zion to help assist.
The track opens with Zion’s heartrending poetry before Sande slides in, her sultry coos pulsing over a minimal, ethereal melody. “Let me love, let me touch, let me love/ Baby, give it up, let me drink from the fountain,” she croons. The number also gets a poignant verse from Electronica, who gives the late funk legend Prince a shoutout when he says, “I love that Purple Rain love.”
“‘Garden’ is one of my favorite songs from the album,” the Scottish singer reveals in a presser. “It is an expression of freedom and passion, two important parts of life, which I hadn’t really explored until a few years ago. It was a great honor to work with the genius Jay Electronica and I’m very excited to introduce a very special talent, Áine Zion.”
