Song of the Week: Emeli Sande - Heaven

Ever since I heard her amazing voice on Chipmunk's 'diamond rings' and later Wiley's 'Never be your Woman', I have been waiting to hear whether Emeli Sande would release some solo material. 

Well thanks to We Are Pop Slags I see that she is due to release her debut single 'Heaven' in the next few months. Apparently Zane Lowe championed it on Radio 1 and one Youtube commetator called it the 'song of the year'.

Update: video now added. 

Heaven is a brilliantly powerful and haunting song set of over a drum-n-base beat, which showcases her voal talents to great effect. On the one hand there are hints of Leona Lewis's pitch in places, but with a whole load more attitude. On the other Emeli sounds completely unique.

I think Emeli Sande is going to be one of the next big hot UK female singers when this is released later in the year. And I am loving her hair too.

Check out some of her other material below, including a brilliant accoustic performancea of 'Maybe' and 'Kill the Boy'.

What do you think?
