“Squeeeeeee!” said I, upon reading this lovely news that Sade – after NINE LONG YEARS of silence – is coming out with a new album by the end of the year.
I’m doing a happy dance right now! 🙂
Of all the singers out there that we Archies have discussed about possible duets and collaborations, Sade never came to mind. Of course, when one is out of the limelight, it’s easy to forget. Sade will be 52 this year (wow, where did the years go?), and I am as excited to know I will have her album alongside David’s Christmas album at the end of the year. With her quirky, jazzy, husky, smooth vocals, I look forward to what she and her band cooks up. She’s another “deep” one. Her song “Cherish the Day” just rocked me to my core – “If you were mine / I wouldn’t want to go to heaven” – I’ve been there! In fact, that entire album, Love Deluxe, nursed me through a break-up (first love and all that).
Cherish the Day:

Here’s a Sade classic I would love to hear David’s vocals on:
