Emeli Sande Won't Let Success Change Or Distract Her: "My Music Would Suffer"

11 April 2013, 13:36

The 'Clown' singer says it is important for her to make music that speaks for other people.

Emeli Sande has vowed not to let her success over the past year distract her from focusing on music.

The 'Next To Me' singer has achieved huge success with her debut album 'Our Version Of Events', as well as picking up a number of awards more recently, but says she won't let it change her.

"If I become distracted by the trappings of my success my music would suffer and change," Emeli told the Daily Star this week. "It would become something that wasn't important any more, because you're just speaking about yourself.

"I don't want to do that, I want to create music that can speak for other people," the Scottish singer explained.

Most recently Emeli debuted a new song called 'Here It Comes', the first new song since her 2012 debut album, which features on the soundtrack to Danny Boyle's new film Trance.

Emeli Sande also features on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby film, on a cover of Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love' with Brian Ferry.
