Emeli Sande has release new single Starlight, produced by Illangelo (The Weeknd, Drake) on Virgin EMI.
The track is the first to be lifted from Sande’s forthcoming EP Kingdom Come, which will be released on 3rd November 2017. Starlight premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show and came after Sande’s triumphant performance at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park earlier this month.
Talking about Starlight Sande said:
“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.
‘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.
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.”
Sande will head out on her UK arena tour in October, which will see her play her biggest headline shows to date.
