Emeli Sande talks upcoming album, American Idol faves!
PopStop TV caught up with British songstress Emeli Sande at the NARM Music Biz 2013 dinner party- where the singer was receiving an award for Breakthrough Artist.
This is my first award in America so this is a big deal for me,” Emeli admitted.
Not one, but two of Emeli’s songs were performed on American Idol this week by Candice and Angie- but who was better?
“Oh man that’s hard to decide,” Emeli said. “I thought Candice- that voice- just blew me away. To be in a brand new country to be watching TV and hearing your songs- it was a beautiful moment, really.”
Emeli writes all of her own music, but who are some artists she would love to help her with the creative process.
“I’d love to write with Bruno mars,” Emeli said. ”I think he’s a fantastic writer and a great creative spirit. I love Kanye West, he’s brilliant. I’d love to work with people who really inspired me when I was younger like Tracy Chapman and Lauryn Hill.”
Emeli’s debut album Our Version of Events came out last year, but she’s already working on her next album- and she can’t wait to release it!
“So far I really feel like I’ve evolved- I’m just so comfortable writing so I’m looking forward to everyone hearing it,”Emeli said.
What else is next on the horizon for Emeli?
“Movies, writing music for film you know? Getting to be on the ‘Gatsby’ soundtrack was a great kind of taster for that,” Emeli added.
