Holy cow: This may be the most anticipated, promising comeback in soul music since…well, Maxwell a few months ago. But it’s certainly not a bad thing; watching the influx of established artists resurface with more quality material is simply exciting and RELIEVING. The songstress with the dizzying vocals returns with the heavy-themed “Soldier of Love,” which sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard in recent years. But this is Sade, who has always been in a league of her own with her multi-ethnic, multi-genre sound. The song may be hard to get into at first, but it will hit you by the 3rd listen. Beautiful music.
The new album, “Soldier of Love,” debuts February 9, 2010!
