New Song: Emeli Sande – ‘Hurts’

Published: Friday 16th Sep 2016 by Sam

Emeli Sande is back!

After a three year hiatus, the multi-Platinum singer returns with ‘Hurts’ – the lead single from her sophomore album ‘Long Live The Angels.’

One of the last songs written for the LP, Sande explained her decision to introduce the project with the song saying…

“I wanted to release ‘Hurts’ first because it felt like everything I’d avoided saying for so long. It’s a real explosion. It’s everything I wish I’d said years and years ago. I didn’t want to hold anything back anymore.”

Take a listen below…


It’s always gratifying when a song billed as “big” not only lives up to its hype but exceeds it.

‘Hurts’ has a fiery franticness that demands attention and an infectious chorus that ensures it tattoos itself in the memory bank of the masses.

Welcome back, Ms. Sande!

    Yaaaaasssss!!! It drives me crazy when an artist of her caliber takes years to put new music together but when it’s a fiery thing like this, I forget about all those years of waiting!

    Love her and her music but it’s all a bit grey.. Her, Adele, Sam they’ve redefined British pop music and have made it melancholy. I like it of course but I need to be in a mood to enjoy it fully. I need her to have a happy single. Cos even her happy singles are borderline depressing.
    I want to see a new side to her because this sounds like it could’ve been on the first album

    Sounds promising! It’s interesting that’s she’s not on Adele’s status!

      Its all about image. If she gave more of a basic look she’d do better. If you listen to her she could sing rings around Leona and has more of a range and depth but i think her image people expect more edge.

    She sounds amazing! I can’t wait until the album comes out. So far it sounds like it’s going to be as epic as her first.
