Emeli Sandé album Real Life

Award-winning Scottish songstress Emeli Sandé announced her much-anticipated third album Real Life, which is set to be released on Friday,7 June 2019.

Real Life is a compilation of eleven tracks that features a fresh, confident sound from Emeli Sandé, following an intense and personal journey of self-doubt and self-discovery. It sees the artist emerging stronger and more defiant following a particularly difficult period in her life.

All the songs on the album were written by Emeli Sandé and produced by Salaam Remi, James Poyser and Troy Miller.

In an official press release issued on Friday, 12 April 2019, the songstress commented on the album, stating “I just want to give people this incredible superpower every time they play the album. Like a battery pack – by the end of the album they’re going to feel restored.”

The album’s lead single, Sparrow, was released on Friday, 15 March 2019. The empowering and uplifting single sees Emeli belt out a powerful rendition about togetherness. She took to Twitter to share about the meaning behind the song with a heartfelt message that reads, “Sparrows are always in flocks and do almost everything together. They’re a symbol of strength and protection in numbers. A reminder that we’re not alone and united we are powerful! Seek strength in each other.”

The song starts off with Emeli crooning softly over a base that utilizes delicate piano keys and fluttering chimes. Her vocals then erupt into a ballad, where a full gospel choir supports her, alongside a thundering percussive line and instrumental melody.

The album is available for pre-order on iTunes.
