A lot has happened to Scottish Emeli Sandé in the four years since the resounding success of her debut CD, Our Version Of Events was released the biggest selling album of 2012 in the U.K. The first single, “Next to Me,” was a smash hit, selling more than seven million downloads worldwide, she performed at the White House and at the opening and closing London 2012 Olympic ceremonies. She won numerous awards and has written songs for Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Katy Perry and many others.

But as 2013 came to a close, the star was exhausted and unable to ignore the strain the hectic pace was putting on a number of close relationships, “Sounds a bit dramatic but I just wanted to disappear. I just had this overwhelming sensation and realization everything had to stop,” she reflects. “And then slowly it did.”

On November 11th, Capitol Records will release Emeli’s Long Live The Angels—the follow-up to her 2012 debut album. Exultant in its delivery and bold in its intent, the album is steeped in an unreserved sense of freedom and self-discovery. It’s from that feeling of freedom that the first single “Hurts” was born, an uplifting track brimming with heart and soul. “This entire album is about me not holding back and not censoring myself, and ‘Hurts’ is an explosion, it’s just…real talk,” explains the talented singer. “I’m proud of my first album and thankful for the experiences it gave me,” she notes. “But I’m so much happier with my new album and with where I am in life.”
