Emeli Sandé has released her new single, ‘Extraordinary Being’, produced by Troy Miller. You can check the track out below.
‘Extraordinary Being’ is taken from the multi-platinum-selling star’s forthcoming third album Real Life, which as uDiscover Music previously reported, is due for release on 7 June on Virgin/EMI. The record represents a new sound for the globally-acclaimed artist, after a period of self-discovery that has resulted in a new defiant confidence for the 32-year-old performer.
Sandé says that her vision for Real Life is to give people hope and confidence, “Especially people who have been marginalised, forgotten or kicked down by this invisible oppression that’s always there. I just want to give people this incredible superpower every time they play the album. Like a battery pack – by the end of the album they’re going to feel restored.”
Real Life follows Sandé’s 2017 EP, Kingdom Coming, which included the singles ‘Starlight’ and ‘Higher.’ She has sold more than six million adjusted albums worldwide and nearly 20 million adjusted singles, across all tracks. Her full-length debut, Our Version Of Events, was named as one of the best albums of 2012 by critics worldwide and certified Gold in the U.S. It broke the U.K. chart record for the most consecutive weeks inside the Top 10, beating the 50-year record previously held by The Beatles. The first single, ‘Next to Me,’ sold more than seven million downloads worldwide, including 1.5 million in the US.
Sandé’s second studio album, Long Live The Angels, was hailed as “a clear, accomplished cry from the heart” by The New York Times. She went on to win “Best Female” at the 2017 BRIT Awards, marking her fourth BRIT Award win to date. She was also appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for her services to music in the 2017 Birthday Honours.
The multi-instrumentalist initially made her mark as a songwriter in the UK urban scene, later becoming a highly sought-after writer for a wide array of international acts including Alicia Keys, Rihanna (alongside her friend, the producer Naughty Boy) and Katy Perry.
