DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Emeli Sandé
  • Track: Clown
  • Producer: Naughty Boy
  • Album: Our Version of Events

For recording artists not lucky enough to be natural businesspeople, shopping oneself around to major labels can leave one feeling like a fish out of water—or, worse, a Clown. On her latest single and first DJBooth feature, Emili Sandé gives listeners a taste of the insecurity, vulnerability and self-doubt she experienced while trying to get signed. Naughty Boy uses a light touch on the production tip, backing the London singer's emotionally-charged vocals with spare piano chords and understated strings, and director Wiz creatively recontexutalizes the record's themes in his official video. The UK's top-selling album of 2012, debut studio album Our Version of Events is available in stores and online as of February.
