About this album

Soldier of Love is the sixth studio album by the English group Sade. It is their first album of original material since Lovers Rock (2000). The album was initially released on 5 February 2010 in Germany, and it was released worldwide on 8 February 2010 and in the United States on 9 February 2010. The first single “Soldier of Love” premiered on 8 December 2009 on the group’s official website.

In March 2009, American recording artist Maxwell, a fellow SONY MUSIC recording artist and longtime friend and collaborator with Stuart Matthewman, sent a message to fans in March via his private Facebook page in which he indicated that he had heard some of Sade’s new recordings, saying, “Trust me, it’s so monolithic it’ll shake you in your shoes!”

According to Billboard, the band had been working on the album throughout June 2009. At that time, SONY MUSIC had not set a release date but it hoped to put the record out by the end of 2009. “She is in the studio and the album will come when it is ready”, a source at SONY MUSIC told Billboard. “You don’t wait for years for one and then rush it.”

Sade says, of Soldier Of Love, “I never want to repeat myself. And that becomes a more interesting challenge for us the longer we carry on together.”
