Soldier of Love

What? How can this be Sade’s debut on the Booth!? She’s been making supremely smooth music for years! Actually, while Sweetest Taboo might seem like just yesterday for us 80s babies, it’s been ten years since we’ve heard from Sade, a hiatus that has mercifully ended with the release of her new single Soldier of Love. (Note: Sade is technically the name of the entire band, but since Sade’s the lead singer, and they named the band after her, I’m sticking with the singular.) Anyway, produced by Sade and Mike Pela, Soldier of Love is an appropriately militaristic track featuring snare drum percussion, mournful horns and Sade’s always seductive and subdued vocals, the perfect mix for a track about carrying on after a broken heart. I’m not sure it’s as good as the classic Sade I grew up with, but I’m so happy to see her back I barely care. Soldier of Love is the title track off the upcoming album Soldier of Love, due out February 8, 2010.
