Emeli Sandé will follow up her 2016 sophomore album, Long Live the Angels, with the brand new EP, ‘Kingdom Coming.’ Set for release on November 3, the project is herald by the new single, “Starlight,” an electro/soul offering that sees the vocal powerhouse cooing about being in love.
“In love, in love / I feel like I just found the one, the one,” she sings. “Baby now look what you done, you done / You’ve lit up my life with your love, your love.”
“Every now and then, some time away can give you the perspective you need to remind you what’s important. I made this song for the pure love and the joy that it brought,” states Sandé. “‘Starlight’ is a true reflection of where I am at in my life at the moment – making music that truly makes me happy and falling in love with it again. Falling in love is such a magical feeling and I have tried my best to represent that in the words and music of this song.”
She continued: “This is the world that my music career started in and it feels incredible to be releasing music that shows a new side of me. The song came so naturally and I really hope it makes people feel good, uplifted and free.”
‘Starlight’ is out now and available for purchase and streaming.
