After ten years without releasing an LP, Sade Adu has finally completed her sixth studio album, Soldier of Love. The Grammy winning artist will return in 2010 with her first collection of new music since 2000’s Lover’s Rock, which went on to become certified triple platinum.
Not many details have been revealed about the upcoming album, although, according to Billboard.com, fellow Sony artist Maxwell said last March that he had heard some of the music from the album. “Trust me, it’s so monolithic it’ll shake you in your shoes!” he wrote on his private Facebook page.
Sade has sold 17 million units in the U.S. alone, and has collaborated with Hip Hop artists such as Krayzie Bone, the Neptunes, and others. Soldier of Love will hit stores in time for Valentine’s Day, on Feb. 8.
