Here’s a belated Father’s Day tribute from Sade. A lady who, at 51, out-smolders every 20-year old tart on the market, and makes washing dishes look like the most soulful thing in the world. Besides her singular voice, Sade has a gift for writing perceptively about feelings. She manages to bare her soul without losing a drop of her mystique. She’s the opposite of confessional – she doesn’t speak of her life, remaining despite her success a thoroughly private citizen. But there’s no doubt that what she sings about is true. You can hear it in her voice. This year she put out her first album in a decade, Soldier Of Love. That it’s no different from Lovers Rock is the highest of compliments. Sometimes she turns her gaze away from romantic love and captures a different kind of love just as beautifully.
