Emeli Sandé showed off her new look – and sound – as she revealed first single Family from her brand new album.
Having released Real Life in 2019, she sent fans wild with her brand new offering, titled Family.
Her latest creation sees Emeli, who is normally known for her powerful soaring vocal, bring a new sound with synths and beats to provide something fans can dance to.
She told fans: “Family marks a new beginning on many levels for me. It’s an ode to resilience, rebirth, and renewal – I hope that it uplifts and empowers each of you!”
The video also sees Emeli trying her hand at some choreography.
Tine Tempah, Leona Lewis, Wretch 32 and others congratulated Emeli on her new production and new look and fans were thrilled to hear it too.
One said: “A sound, a vibe, a feeling, an aesthetic – so uplifting, so spiritual!”
Another added: “Obsessed!”
Some left mixed reviews, saying they were disappointed on the amount of autotune added to the track given Emeli has an outstanding voice.
One said: “Love the message but the vocal production on this one might be something that needs to grow, your voice doesn’t need that.”
Another added: “Really like the sound of this. Please think about releasing a version with far less autotune.”
And someone else suggested: “Love the lyric, but this is the only song you have made I don’t like, and I’m probably your biggest fan, but hey ho, your vocal does not need auto tune, big love and keep doing what you do.”
