Andrew Martin of Prefix Mag on Sade’s “Soldier of Love” album:
It’s gone through a name change (previously titled Love Supreme) and it’s been nearly nine years since its predecessor (Lovers Rock) dropped, but Sade’s new album will drop worldwide Feb. 8, 2010. And, like her two previous albums, Soldiers of Love continues the tradition of extended gaps of time between releases. This will be the sixth record from the soulful 50-year-old songstress and her three band members. They released their debut, Diamond Life, in 1985.
