Emeli Sande's New Track About Early Career Struggle

14 December 2011, 13:42

The 'Daddy' singer has explored her difficulty in finding a label to release her music in a new song for first album 'Our Version Of Events'.

Emeli Sande has revealed one of the tracks from her upcoming album was written about her struggle to get signed by a record label.

The 'Heaven' singer penned the track 'Clown' while trying to release her own solo material, despite already being a successful songwriter in her own right, and describes how many in the industry made fun of her ambition.

"When I look back I was writing 'Clown' about it being hard to get a deal, finding it hard to find people in the industry who were interested in me," Emeli told the Daily Star.

"There's a line, 'I guess it's funnier from where you're standing because from over here I'm just a joke'.

"People always laugh at you when you're trying to be creative or achieve something and putting yourself out there so it's me saying I'm prepared to be a clown."

The 'Daddy' singer says she was surprised by how easy it was to get started as a songwriter, and attributes her success to the fact that her material was so different to anything else out there.

She added: "It was never a struggle as a songwriter because I think I was doing something that no-one else was."

Emeli has been nominated for the Critics' Choice Award at the BRIT Awards 2012 and recently said she was feeling overwhelmed by the honour.

Emeli Sande's debut solo album 'Our Version Of Events' is due to be released on 13th February.
