Editors’ Notes The powerhouse soprano makes a triumphant return. After a sensational debut in 2012 that earned her comparisons to Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone, Emeli Sandé struggled with exhaustion, depression, and divorce. During a four-year hiatus from the spotlight, she wrote Long Live the Angels, a glorious comeback album of empowering ballads that go for the gut. Guests include Jay Electronica and Sandé’s Zambian father, who sings on “Tenderly” with the Serenje Choir.
