New Song: Sade – ‘Soldier Of Love’

Published: Tuesday 8th Dec 2009 by Trent

Sade has just released the first single from next year’s ‘Soldier of Love’ LP. The title track features productions by Mike Pela and vocals from lead singer, Sade Adu. The ‘Soldier of Love’ album hits stores on February 8th 2010.

Although promoting a similar message, this track serves as the complete opposite of Jordin Sparks’ ‘Battlefield’; dark and haunting. Sade Adu’s smokey vocals tie in perfectly with the foreboding productions. It is  really astonishing how a vocalist with such a limited vocal range is able to convey such a powerful performance. It goes to show that the old adage is true: less is indeed more.

Hit or Miss?

    Real singing is about conveying emotions and making us feel something – you don’t need a million riffs, runs and scaling octaves to do that…

    It’s a little bit dissapointing.. even though the sound is refreshing, the melody isn’t really cacthy…but maybe it’s a grower…anyway i’ll buy the album when it comes out nonetheless…!

    I heard this on the radio in the car, but it’s really something you should hear for the first time while sitting in a quiet place so you can really get into it cause it was kind of crazy, especially when she said “This is The Wild Wild West”. Now! the beat is cool but them lyrics was way out there..

    Did you really refer to Sade voice as “limited range” seriously?! I’m going to assume you never listened to her ENTIRE past albums and this is the FIRST time you listened to a whole track of hers b/c that’s an INSULT? Who reviewed this track Trent or Sam? Educate yourself on this woman before you throw such words as “limited range” around!

  8. KIM December 8, 2009

    Great song, love the emotion and theme. Love Sade and love the production. Its great how she has managed to update her sound, but yet it still feels like Sade is being true to herself, with a modern twist. i’m so excited for this new album.

    I love it, and I’m agreeing with the others that was an insult to Sade. if you listen to all your cds you wouldn’t say that.
