The ‘Next To Me’ singer is said to be writing songs for her next record.
Emeli Sande may still be revelling in the success of her debut best-selling album ‘Our Version of Events,’ but the Scottish songstress is already said to be planning her next record and sources say it could “happen quickly.”
The ‘Read All About It’ singer released ‘Our Version Of Events’ a year ago and it has gone to earn all manners of achievements for Emeli including the best-selling album of 2012 title and most recently, trumping The Beatles’ record with the LP spending a whopping 64 weeks in the top 10 on the UK charts.
Emeli Sande will reportedly release her new album in 2014.
While Emeli could most likely live off the success of her debut for the next few years, an insider claims she is already working on her second album with a view to release in 2014.
“She’s got to take some time to organise her thoughts and start writing songs for her next record,” a source told Music Week.
“It may happen quickly. It may take some time, but I think she would want another album to come out perhaps next year.
“She’s very diligent and has a very solid work ethic. She’s very serious about what she does, which is a joy.”
Meanwhile, the source claims that Emeli’s record label Universal, which now own Virgin Records, will focus on making the singer’s launch in the US a huge success.
“Since Steve Barnett has taken over at Capitol [Records] it’s brought some real focus and order and Universal love Emeli and they want it to be successful there,” the insider said.
“It’s moving in the right direction. Her profile is building in the right way and are feeling very confident they are going to have a successful campaign over there. While she’s there we’ll just book a studio somewhere for her to sit down and get her thoughts out.”
‘Our Version of Events’ has spent several weeks at number one over the course of the year since it was released and has spawned the hit single ‘Heaven,’ ‘Next To Me’ and ‘Clown.’
