Sade's Soldier Of Love
After a decade of waiting, it's finally here! Epic Records is proud and honored to announce the release of 'Soldier of Love', the highly anticipated new body of work from Sade. 'Soldier of Love' is Sade's first official studio album since the multi-platinum release of 'Lovers Rock' in 2000. The album will be available everywhere on February 9th!
For most of the past 20 years, Sade has prioritized her personal life over her professional career, releasing only three studio albums of new material during that period. Her marriage to the Spanish film director Carlos Scola Pliego in 1989; the birth of her daughter in 1996 and her early 21st century move from North London to rural Gloucestershire, where she now lives with a new partner, have consumed much of her time and attention. And quite rightly so. “You can only grow as an artist as long as you allow yourself the time to grow as a person,” Sade says. “We're all parents, our lives have all moved on. I couldn't have made 'Soldier of Love' any time before now, and though it's been a long wait for the fans – and I am sorry about that - I'm incredibly proud of it.”
