Seems 'Hurt' might have been too big a track to live up to. Emeli Sandé teams up with Jay Electronica and Áine Zion for new countdown single 'Garden.' Over a sparse and brooding backbeat, Emeli packs a powerful delivery. Though vocals really aren't the problem, it's just a bit bland and forgettable. It doesn't have a climax and goes nowhere. The cut is taken off Sandé's new album ‘Long Live The Angels,' due November 11th.
In a statement, Sandé said of the track:
“'Garden' is one of my favorite songs from the album. It is an expression of freedom and passion, two important parts of life, which I hadn’t really explored until a few years ago. It was a great honor to work with the genius Jay Electronica and I’m very excited to introduce a very special talent, Áine Zion.”
