EMELI SANDÉ ANNOUNCES 2017 UK TOUR + NEW VIDEO FOR GARDEN FT JAY ELECTRONICA & ÁINE ZION

One of the UK’s most revered artists, multi-platinum selling Emeli Sandé has today announced that she will be hitting the road once again in March 2017 to play 4 very special UK shows in Edinburgh, Birmingham, London and Leeds in support of her critically acclaimed new album ‘Long Live The Angels’. Tickets will go on general sale at 9am Thursday 17th November from www.livenation.co.uk

The announcement follows the culmination of her recent tour of intimate shows, which sold out in 9 minutes and received huge critical acclaim; The Guardian wrote ‘An inimitable show that rings with passion’, The Telegraph said, ‘Sandé’s second coming seems assured’ and the Evening Standard declared, “ Her voice sounds like a gift from above.”

Emeli also dropped the new video for sexy, brooding track ‘Garden’ ft Jay Electronica and Áine Zion. Directed by Charlie Robins, the video captures with enigmatic strong visuals the flawless and captivating sound of ‘Garden’.

“‘Garden’ is one of my favourite songs from the album,” Emeli says, “It is an expression of freedom and passion, two important parts of life which I hadn’t really explored until a few years ago. It was a great honour to work with the genius Jay Electronica and I’m very excited to introduce a very special talent, Áine Zion.

‘Long Live The Angels’ is a mesmerising journey through the triumphs and tragedies of the last four years of Emeli Sandé’s extraordinary life. Exultant in its delivery and bold in its intent, the record is steeped in an unreserved sense of freedom and self-discovery. Recorded in New York, L.A, London and Oxford and available in Standard CD (15 tracks) and Deluxe Version (18 tracks), ‘Long Live the Angels’ crackles with energy and a sense of euphoria for both listener and artist.

A lot has happened to Sandé in the four years since the resounding success of her critically acclaimed number one record,’ Our Version Of Events’. Not only was it the biggest selling album of 2012 and second biggest selling album of 2013, but it was also certified 7x platinum, spent seven non-consecutive weeks at No.1 and exceeded The Beatles’ previous record by spending 63 consecutive weeks in the top 10 and selling over 4.6 million copies worldwide.  The Aberdonian scored three UK number 1 singles including ‘Next to Me’ which is certified platinum in the U.S., with over 1.5 million singles sold. Sandé has won numerous accolades including 3 X Brit Awards (Critics Choice, Best Album, Female Solo) as well as awards from Q Magazine, Elle, Harpers and GQ.  The multi-instrumentalist initially made her mark as a songwriter in the UK urban scene via acts such as Wiley, Wretch 32 and Chip, later becoming a highly sought-after writer for a wide array of international acts including Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Katy Perry.
