FRESH: ‘I’ll Get There (The Other Side)’ – Emeli Sandé

Emeli Sandé releases “I’ll Get There (The Other Side)”

Multi-platinum, award-winning recording artist Emeli Sandé MBE has released a new track, “I’ll Get There (The Other Side),” taken from the soundtrack of the new film ‘Emperor’. Written by the legendary, eleven time Oscar nominee, Diane Warren, “I’ll Get There (The Other Side)” is the only original song to be featured in the movie, featuring emotive lyrics perfectly matched to the films powerful plot.

Emeli says: “I was so inspired by the true legend of Sheilds ‘Emperor’ Green that the film is based on. The film is a reminder of African royalty, dignity and perseverance which shone through even during the darkest, most oppressive periods of our history. It is a reminder to me that no matter what situation you may be placed in physically, freedom of the mind and innate self respect, although difficult, is ultimately within our control. Only through knowledge of our true history can this be made secure. I hope that in singing this song, I can play a small part in paying homage to my ancestors’ unbreakable spirit of determination for freedom”.

The stunning video is directed by iconic British photographer Rankin. His signature creative flair, combined with powerful clips from ‘Emperor’, beautifully captures the song’s message of positivity, belief and hope. The film is based on a remarkable true story. Dayo Okeniyi plays Shields Green, an escaped slave who will do anything to free his family. Racing north, Green joins forces with the legendary John Brown in the battle at Harpers Ferry, a key battle of the abolitionist movement and that helped spark the Civil War. ‘Emperor’ will be released on digital and DVD August 18th 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

With over 340 million video views, nearly 20 million singles sold including three number one UK singles and over six million albums, Emeli Sandé has dominated the music industry and captured the heart of the Nation. Her debut album, “Our Version Of Events”, released in 2012, was the biggest selling album of that year and the second biggest of 2013. The album also broke the chart record for the most consecutive weeks inside the Top 10, breaking the 50-year record previously held by The Beatles. The singer has won numerous accolades including four Brit Awards (Critics Choice, Best Album and Female Solo twice, most recently in 2017 for her second album, “Long Live The Angels”) and in 2018 was awarded an MBE for services to Music. Last year she released her critically acclaimed third album “Real Life“.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
