“OUR VERSION OF EVENTS” ENTERED THE UK CHART AT # 1 week of release!!!!!!
If you're wondering which album will be the sound of 2012, look no further than the one in this very envelope. Emeli Sandé's Our Version Of Events will be the album to own in 2012.
Like classic debut albums before it, Sandé's debut is a moment in musical time. Credible without attempting to be too ‘cool’, heartbroken yet crazy in love, it is considered without trying to be too clever. This is a distinctly British record with undeniable global appeal, created by one of the most exciting debut artists we have seen in recent years.
For a relative newcomer, Sandé has already had an incredible career. As a published writer she’s written hit singles for Chipmunk (Diamond Rings) and Wiley (Never Be Your Woman) and album tracks for Cheryl Cole, Susan Boyle and Tinie Tempah. Since
signing a record deal with Virgin Records in 2011, Emeli has had a No. 2 debut single with Heaven, a No.1 single with Professor Green (Read All About It), won Best Newcomer at the Scottish Style Awards, been nominated for a MOBO and nominated
for the New to Q Magazine award and won the Brits Critic's Choice award 2012 following in the footsteps of Adele, Florence And The Machine and Jessie J. New single Next To Me could, at first glance, be about a boy, or even be perhaps spiritual in its sentiment. In fact, says Emeli, it was written about her No.1 love; music. ‘You won’t find him drinking under tables/ Rolling dice and staying out till 3/ You won’t ever find him being unfaithful/ You will find him next to me.’
Emeli supported Alicia Keys at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year and it was the beginning of the creative spark between the two. In November 2011, Emeli flew to New York to work with Alicia. “Because we both play piano, it made it much more of a natural process,” she says of the experience. “I don’t write with other people very well in general, so it was really cool to find someone that I like to write with. And even better that the person happened to be someone I’ve loved since I was a teenager.” The pair created a song to be used Keys’ next album, and also the track Hope on Our Version Of Events.
