Hat tip to Yazmar for this one:
First Maxwell decides to come out with an album and now word on the street is that the one and only Sade plans on releasing an album this year also.  I just can't take it.  This is too much for my little heart to bear.  Next they're going to tell me that Lauryn Hill has finally decided to come out with a follow-up to the "Mis-Education of Lauryn Hill."  What a wonderful day that would be.

Sade's new album will be released November 24, 2009. Just in time for the Holidays

The title of the Album has not been released.

If you know Sade, you know she does not make albums for the money, Sade is an artist who creates music purely on inspiration. Hence why we've waited nearly a decade for another release, like a poet with a 9 year dry spell until she fell in love again, Sade will bless us with another classic.

November 2000 was the last time Sade had a new album out, here we are, 9 years later and we are once again being blessed with another November release date, Why november? Sade loves the Holidays...

While some political observers lament a return of the same old, same old, fans of the Nigerian-born singer have gladly welcomed a fresh batch of takes on the labors of lost love.

Regardless of the new talent and musical trends that have come and gone since her last studio album, one thing will never change, her honeyed voice. With only slight stylistic changes marking each new collection of songs, Sade has sold more than 40 million albums since the mid-'80s, each marked by tales of heartache and longing, and none more spare and haunting than Lovers Rock.

The 50-year-old singer, who got her first break in the early '80s fronting the English Latin soul band Pride, reveals little about her closely shielded private life on her #5 album.

From her signature first hit, 1984's "Smooth Operator," off her Diamond Life debut, to "The Sweetest Taboo," Sade has avoided trend-hopping. It's a pattern she told MTV Europe she's continuing on her latest release. "We're lucky that we have some platform already established that we can step back onto," she said. "We haven't ever adapted to fit in and even right at the very beginning we didn't really fit in. We have our own kind of course and that's the route we go. So we either sink or swim."

  1. Beginning to think the hype about a new Sade album/cd may ultimately be a hoax. I sure hope not, but if you peel the onion back a few layers, it appears that it all started with a few rumors in late 2008/early 2009, then snowballed through June-July. Now there is an eire silence from the industry, and a lot of anxious & devoted fans. Ground-truth and hard facts are completely elusive in this case... RC
