 – THE FIRST COMPLETE COLLECTION OF THEIR STUDIO WORK UP TO THE PRESENT DAY. ALL SIX OF THE BAND’S ACCLAIMED ALBUMS: DIAMOND LIFE (1984), PROMISE (1985), STRONGER THAN PRIDE (1988), LOVE DELUXE (1992), LOVERS ROCK (2000), AND SOLDIER OF LOVE (2010)  
 
The close band of four: Sade (vocals), Stuart Matthewman (saxophone/guitar), Andrew Hale (keyboards) and Paul Spencer Denman (bass), were intimately involved in the process, spending time at Abbey Road Studios alongside acclaimed mastering engineer Miles Showell, and the band's longtime co-producer Mike Pela.
 
 
 
Over an exceptional career spanning more than three decades, Sade's six albums have amassed a cool 60 million worldwide sales and have been certified platinum 24 times over. Producing singles such as "Your Love Is King", "Smooth Operator", and "By Your Side", Sade have gone on to achieve Number 1 albums across the world, collected several Grammys, MTV Video Music Awards, and a BRIT Award along the way, quietly taking their "place in the pantheon of cultural influence" [New York Times, October 2017]. Their most recent studio album, Soldier Of Love, charted at number one in 15 countries, including the US, upon release in 2010.
Commanding high praise from all genres of the global musical landscape Sade continue to leave their mark, engraved as a strong influence to some of today's most successful artists. The band are frequently cited as having inspired a younger generation of musicians, including Beyoncé, Drake, Kanye West, and Missy Elliot, to the freshest young blood of Christine and the Queens, Dua Lipa, FKA Twigs, Mabel, and Taylor Swift. Hip-hop luminaries have sampled from Sade's work creating new club classics, and their timeless tracks have been covered by Deftones, Donna Summer, Frank Ocean, Herbie Hancock, Jason Mraz, Lauryn Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Marsha Ambrosius featuring Dr. Dre, Prince, The 1975, Tori Amos, and You + Me, amongst others.
 
Sade herself, universally lauded as "notoriously elusive", made her mark as a style icon after gracing the covers of The Face, Time, Rolling Stone, Billboard, i-D, Fader, Elle France, Cosmopolitan, NME, Melody Maker, Smash Hits, Essence, Ebony, Pride, Interview, and more throughout the band's illustrious career.
