Overview

Soldier of Love is only the sixth studio album the band Sade have released during their 25 year career, and the first since Lovers Rock in 2000. For Sade herself, as the lynchpin of the group's songwriting effort, it's a simple matter of integrity and authenticity. "I only make records when I feel I have something to say. I'm not interested in releasing music just for the sake of selling something. Sade is not a brand."

The feel of the music this time has moved away from the old country soul styling of Lovers Rock and assumes a more eclectic identity. At times the band sounds like the original Sade, with Stuart Matthewman back blowing soft sax on "In Another Time" and the vocal on "Long Hard Road" hymning. But with songs such as the joyously quirky reggae chant "Babyfather" and the dramatically arranged album opener "The Moon and the Sky," Sade are exploring new territory. "I never want to repeat myself," Sade herself says. "And that becomes a more interesting challenge for us the longer we carry on together."
