Emeli Sandé will release her fifth album this autumn.

'How Were We To Know', the follow-up to 2022's 'Let's Say for Instance', is due out on November 17 via Chrysalis Records. The record explores all aspects of love from joy to heartbreak. Introducing it, the Sunderland vocalist said:

“Once you’ve been hurt, it’s very hard to pick up the pieces again and allow yourself to be vulnerable. So I think these songs explore the bravery of love, and loving others but also yourself. These songs were pieces of a puzzle I had to put together, and now feels like the right time to share them. These are tales from a hopeless romantic. I’m very romantic, and it gets me in trouble sometimes!”

As a preview she's shared the record's lead single, There For You, a rousing soul-pop song for which she delivers a dynamic and powerful yet effortless vocal performance. She commented:

“‘There For You’ is about how I’ll always have love for the people I’ve been with. Even if I’m pissed off with them for a couple of years, I’ll always care for them, I’ll always want to know they’re OK. Because once you’ve committed to that love with someone, it doesn’t just go away.”

Sandé will headline the Royal Festival Hall on November 11 as part of the EFG Jazz Festival London. Tickets are on sale now.
