****************************************************************

I am a lover of music and I am a fan of SADE! Ever since I was a little girl I loved listening to her music. Well she has  a new CD hitting the stores on February 9th 2010! This is very exciting and just in time for Valentines Day!

I know what to get my darling husband for Valentines! Yes he loves SADE's music too!
I watched the video and love love love the song! I can't wait to hear the whole CD! 

Music lovers, whip out the cash and head to the stores for yours, before Valentines day or just win one here!

Here's more information on the release:

SADE
SOLDIER OF LOVE
NEW CD RELEASE 02.09.10
The group, best known for their mellow, melodic hits like "By Your Side" and "No Ordinary Love," will release their first album of new material since 2000, Soldier of Love, on Feb. 9.
Among the new tunes is "Babyfather," "about how great it is to be a parent, what a great honor and privilege that is, and what a terrible thing that is to waste," frontwoman Sade Adu tells PEOPLE. 
"As long as you feel good about yourself, you can be a good parent, and then it becomes an endless fruitful cycle," she says.


The Soldier Of Love was recorded in England and produced by the band and their longtime collaborator Mike Pela.
WATCH THE VIDEO:

Soldier Of Love


Soldier of Love is only the sixth studio album the band Sade have released during their 25 year career, and the first since Lovers Rock in 2000. For Sade herself, as the lynchpin of the group's songwriting effort, it's a simple matter of integrity and authenticity. "I only make records when I feel I have something to say. I'm not interested in releasing music just for the sake of selling something. Sade is not a brand." 

Helen Folasade Adu was born in Ibadan, Nigeria. Her father was Nigerian, a university teacher of economics; her mother Anne was an English nurse. The couple met in London while he was studying at the LSE and moved to Nigeria shortly after getting married. When their daughter was born, nobody locally was prepared to call her by her English name, and a shortened version of Folasade stuck. Then, when she was four, her parents separated, and her mother brought Sade and her elder brother Banji back to England, where they initially lived with their grandparents just outside Colchester, Essex. 



Music was not her first choice as a career. She studied fashion at St Martin's School Of Art and only began singing after two old school friends with a fledgling group approached her to help them out with the vocals.

Somewhat to her surprise, she found that while the singing made her nervous, she enjoyed writing songs. Two years later she had overcome her stage fright and was regularly singing back up with a North London Latin funk band called Pride. "I used to get on stage with Pride, like, shaking. I was terrified. But I was determined to try my best, and I decided that if I was going to sing, I would sing the way I speak, because it's important to be yourself." 


For most of the past 20 years, Sade has prioritised her personal life over her professional career, releasing only three studio albums of new material during that period. Her marriage to the Spanish film director Carlos Scola Pliego in 1989; the birth of her daughter in 1996 and her early 21st century move from North London to rural Gloucestershire, where she now lives with a new partner, have consumed much of her time and attention. And quite rightly so. "You can only grow as an artist as long as you allow yourself the time to grow as a person," Sade says. "We're all parents, our lives have all moved on. I couldn't have made Soldier of Love any time before now, and though it's been a long wait for the fans - and I am sorry about that - I'm incredibly proud of it."

  3. Hi!! I love Sade, she's always been my favorite. I love her new hit.

    I would love to get flowers and chocolates and a dinner for my Valentines this year. My husband isn't the type to do those things, so I'd be lucky to get one of them (prob. dinner, since it's the easiest to him).

    Thanks!!
