The debut album from Capitol Records’ artist Emeli SandÃ© – debuted on the UK Album Chart at No. 1 this week. Due for release in the U.S. on June 5th, Our Version of Events is a powerful platform for SandÃ©’s rich, soulful voice and sophisticated songwriting. As Q magazine put it: “She’s made an album that deserves to linger in the limelight – passionate, powerful, and possessed of real star quality.” A heady and complex soundscape to showcase her towering talent, Our Version of Events is rife with raw emotion, while bearing a sharp and shining retro-futurist feel.
SandÃ© will make her North American live debut with a string of stateside showcases beginning Monday, February 27th. In addition to private shows in New York City and Los Angeles, she will perform for the public in San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Toronto before returning to the U.S. this summer to open a series of arena shows for her Capitol Records’ label mates Coldplay, whom she toured with in the UK in December.
