Songstress Emeli Sandé has admitted that she’s excited but a little daunted at trying to launch her career in America, which she will focus on in 2013.

The star recently explained that she won’t be in the UK for a while and is currently on a headlining tour of the USA, and told Billboard that she’s nervous at what the next few months will hold as it’s a big step for any artist:

“I think my biggest challenge for this year is bringing the music over here and to the rest of Europe. The way I’m approaching it is the same way we did in the U.K.”

“It’s so important to build a fan base from the grass roots up and start with very small shows and a real emphasis on live music. That’s what I’m doing here (in North America), just doing small shows and building naturally. You can’t really force it, so I’m just trying to introduce the music slow and steady.”

The ‘Heaven’ hitmaker added that she wants to work on new material, but really needs to focus all of her attention on touring: “I’m trying to write on the road, but I think I need to finish these tours and really sit down and dedicate some proper time to writing.”

She also revealed a desire to relocate to America for a period of time while she writes and confessed that the tour means she can figure out where would be a good place to move to: “Being able to do this tour now gives me a chance to scope out each city along the way.”

“I really liked Atlanta. I really like New York. I’m sure I’ll work in England some more, too. I’m just so happy the people in the U.K. could really connect to the music, and I’m not abandoning them or anything like that.”


Emeli Sande is certainly hot property at the moment, so it comes as no surprise that Conor Maynard has rushed to score a collaboration with the singer for his next album.

The ‘Turn Around’ singer has revealed that he approached Emeli with hopes of a collaboration while they were filming the Top Of The Pops Christmas special together in December.

“We were saying we’d have to get in the studio together early this year, so I’m very excited about that,” Conor told the Daily Star

He states that it is “very cool” and promises “when we are back in the UK it will happen.”

When talking about their first meeting Maynard said that the first time he went to the BRITS, he shared a car with Emeli, but neither of them were known.

Reflecting on how far he has come he said: “For me it is a weird feeling, two years down the line, now with all the huge success. This year will be one of the first times I’ve attended the BRITs where people actually know who I am.”

Emeli is up for three BRIT Awards this year, including Best British Female and Best British Single for ‘Next To Me.’

Conor’s latest single, ‘Animal’, featuring Wiley is out January 21.


Emeli Sandé has returned to the top of the UK albums chart.

The singer’s album ‘Our Version Of Events’ was named the best selling record in the UK of 2012, and it seems she has started the new year with a bang too.

It is the album’s eighth week at the top of the chart, beating off competition from last week’s No.1, Calvin Harris‘ ’18 Months’.

Taking the bronze medal this week is Jake Bugg’s self-titled debut, whilst Rihanna‘s ‘Unapologetic’ is in at No.4.

Other notable entries in the top ten include the Les Misérables soundtrack at No.5, with Ed Sheeran‘s ‘+’ following at No.6.

The Lumineers’ ‘The Lumineers’ meanwhile is in at No.10.


Last night was Emeli’s fist stop on her new North American tour. Emeli visited ‘The Variety Playhouse’ in Atlanta, Georgia.

From what we can tell the crowd was very friendly with her and knew a lot of her songs already. For instance, when Emeli performs ‘My Kind of Love’ you can really hear the audience sing it back to her!
