Sade + Sophie Muller = Photo Perfection

February 26, 2010

Sade collaborated with her long-time friend photographer/British music video director Sophie Muller for these two new portraits in support of Soldier of Love whose album has been in the #1 spot for the 2nd consecutive week! Muller also directed the iconic “Soldier of Love” music video, all of the Soldier of Love promotional framework, and shot the cover artwork. The new portraits showcase Sade in her Cherish The Day element  – with a electric guitar in front of a checkered print wall. (Perhaps Sade’s busy recording a live version of the Soldier of Love album??? -wink- -wink- Get that promo shine, Sade!)

Via ThinkTank Press Release:

New York, NY – For a second consecutive week, SOLDIER OF LOVE, retains the # 1 spot on the charts fending off the competition with 694,000 units sold. The album exploded onto the charts last week selling an astonishing 502,000 copies making it the best sales week for an album by a group since AC/DC in 2008.

SOLDIER OF LOVE marks Sade’s eighth album to rank in the top 10 among Billboard’s 200 making them the first group since Led Zeppelin to hold this accomplishment. The attention grabbing first single “Soldier of Love” continues to heat up the airwaves across multiple radio formats and the video remains one of the most played videos for two consecutive months

Entertainment Weekly featured SOLDIER OF LOVE in their “Must List” and gave the album an “A”, Rolling Stone wrote, “it’s unimpeachably excellent,” and The Boston Globe calls it, “a rich and rewarding album.” But the accolades don’t stop there. Associated Press raved, “like a long-ago lover not quite forgotten, Sade has returned to steal our hearts with more beautiful, uncategorizable music,” Billboard was quoted as saying, “it’s been 10 years since Sade released an album, but be forewarned – the giant has awoken,” while People Magazine reminds us that “Sade remains the voice of comfort to the wounded heart.”

Known for their one of a kind timeless sound, Sade has enjoyed phenomenal success both internationally and stateside throughout the span of their twenty-five year career. Since the release of their debut album, Diamond Life in 1984 the band has seen all five of their studio albums land in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart selling a total of more than 50 million albums worldwide to date. They’ve been nominated for American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and have won three Grammy Awards – first in 1986 for Best New Artist, then in 1994 for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group for “No Ordinary Love”, and again in 2002 for Best Pop Vocal Album with Lovers Rock.

Kudos to Sade for making consistent smooth jazz music since Diamond LifeMany thanks to Brian Scully for the new Sade photo tip!
