The official cover of Sade’s new album has been revealed. The LP, entitled ‘Soldier of Love’, is her first studio release in nine years. The project will be released via Epic Records on February 8th 2010.
Classic. Diva. Icon. I cannot express how much I have missed Sade’s smokey contralto. It’s a rare faculty for a singer to command such refined passion and sensuality with her voice. To avoid becoming captured by the rapture of her tones is almost an impossibility. I am certain that the advocates of true Adult Contemporary R&B are beyond excited for February to come around and I am too!
