UPDATE: The Wait Is Over: Soldier of Love Coming Feb 8, 2010
Around 10 months ago I wrote a post on singer Sade. You can view that article by clicking here… TheBluesBlogger site was fairly new and I mentioned briefly that I had guitars on my wall for arts sake. They never usually come off the wall, but sometimes when I hear certain music and the mood strikes, I will tune one of them up and play along. I am not a musician and I never will be, but occasionally I do like to pretend. Sade’s music is simple yet so very soulful and inspiring that I can’t help myself sometimes.
Why The Update?
Nothing much has changed in the way of news or updates. So many people wonder what happened to Sade. They look for any information regarding tours in 2008 and 2009 and fall into the rumor mill of any possible tour, performance or new album. A search around the net will not reveal much information at all. However, I felt the need to say hello to her fans that have continued to visit my post that I wrote almost a year ago. It really has generated some massive traffic… I used to feel a little guilty about the article, as it is obvious that Sade, for many reasons has chosen to slip into the background. And the traffic the post continues to generate was perhaps not helping to cool things off… Then I thought, why should I feel bad? If I’m creating a place for true Sade fans to visit and comment, how bad could that be? People can fade away, but never the music they create; especially Sade’s soulful luscious sound. Like a fine wine, I believe her sound gets better with age.
This Is My Concern
There isn’t much information out there and websites, particularly Sade’s MySpace page, is loosing its focus… The last login was March 2006 and multiple layers of music play over each other. It should really be cleaned up as I find it very disappointing… So many of her fans would love to find a place to discuss her music and the times and feelings they had when they first experienced her special gift. Like a photograph that we look back upon and share with a delightful memory and smile, her music will always live on…

Thanks for visiting TheBluesBlogger site … And who knows, perhaps one day we will discover positive news that we will be able to share with each other. But let’s respect Sade’s decision for whatever she may choose to do… One thing I am confident of is that Sade will always continue to cherish the comments and love from her true fans.
With my strat on my lap I have yet again grooved to the Sade tunes featured here today. What feelings do you get when you hear these sweet sounds? Your comments are most welcome. You can add them to this new updated post, or you can visit last year’s article and add them by going here.
