Introduced to the world ten years ago, Emeli Sandé MBE has become an icon of British singer-songwriting; emotional, honest, and prolific in the kind of manner that cements you as a go-to artist for heartfelt pop sensibility. In 2022, it’s time for a reintroduction. Newly signed to independent label Chrysalis Records, Sandé has freed herself from the expectations of others in order to make an album of expansive creativity, flexing her holistic skills as a songwriter, producer and vocalist in new, versatile ways. Something of an artistic rebirth, it draws on old familiarities and brave beginnings, uniting fans old and new in her endless drive to use music as a tool for inspirational lift. Tracing a journey through shades of classical, disco, nostalgic RnB and more, ‘Let’s Say For Instance’ is a record that asks important questions of both artist and listener; what if falling in love with music again is a simple matter of actually letting yourself be who you really are? What magic can happen when you follow the path that truly feels right for you, rather than the one that is easiest to tread? Whether it’s life, love, or locating hope in a world that often feels hopeless, Emeli Sandé is an artist who knows how to wear her emotions on her musical sleeve, creating a welcoming space for others to do the same.
