Emeli Sande To Release ‘Our Version of Events’

 

Scottish-born singer Emeli Sandé’s upcoming debut, Our Version Of Events, will be out in the US on June 5th. Already out in the UK, the work shows Emeli to be a vocal force hinting at inspiration from greats like Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, and Lauryn Hill. Recently crowned the winner of the prestigious Critics Choice Award at the 2012 Brit Awards (past winners include Adele and Florence + the Machine), Sandé is already flying high.

Looking forward to see how she develops once her album officially drops out here! Only awesomeness is to come. Watch her video for “Heaven” and you’ll get it.

Emeli’s North American live debut is going to be something to see with that potent delivery of hers. Stay tuned for news on secret U.S. showcases happening in a few weeks.

New Release: Air – ‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’

 

Based on Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip To The Moon), the classic silent film by Georges Méliès in 1902, French duo AIR have created a full album inspired by the film. The result is a stunning body of cinematic instrumentals, adding an eerie, otherworldly life to Méliès’ work, which is already full of so much character, color, and peculiarity.
