Freddie Matthews writes from London: The albums released back in February 2012. At the time Scotland’s Emeli Sande had just won the critics’ choice award at the 2012 Brit Awards.
|New Albums: Emeli Sande – Our Version Of Events (Special Edition)|
Not much was known about Emeli Sande in early 2012 but she’d been quietly working away for several years in the build up to her solo singing career to follow. She’d won songwriting competitions and gone on to write songs for the likes of Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle and Cher Lloyd.
The most successful song from this Emeli Sande to date is track 10; Next To Me. It’s had over 20 million You Tube views as well as selling almost 1 million copies worldwide.It would seem that Emeli Sande’s success lies in collaborations with other artists. Just this week she achieved another UK No.1 but this time as part of a Labrinth song Beneath Your Beautiful.

Emeli Sande is very much of this present time. Featuring artists come and go and if we recall some of the biggest of the last 5 years we think about the likes of: Sean Paul, Kanye West, Rihanna, Jay Z and Bruno Mars. It goes without saying that Our Version Of Events should have had far more sales than a mere 600 plus thousand and that’s something that only this Special Edition can change. These are just snippets of a post made earlier yesterday over on Stirring Trouble Internationally- A humorous take on news and current affairs.
