Listing Detail Tabs

'Diamond Life' is Sade's stunning debut album, which was originally released in 1984, and produced by Robin Millar. This re-issue edition was digitally re-mastered by Tom Coyne at Sterling Sound in New York

Helen Folasade Adu made an instant impact with the release in of her first recording, 'Diamond Life'. Sade was speaking to a global audience with such hit singles as "Your Love is King", "Smooth Operator" and "Hang on to Your Love" -- the audience loved her music. The album spent 98 weeks on the UK charts and 81 weeks on the Billboard charts. Sade received a BPI award for "best album" and a grammy for "best new artist".

The work is so dazzling that it demands a leap of imagination to picture the struggle that's gone into it's conception. This is why Sade, who has never allowed her music to be anything less than immaculate, tantalises audiences so. Throughout her career, there has been intense public curiosity about Sade's private life, as though its uncovering will reveal how she comes to make such compelling music.

Many years later, 'Diamond Life' still sounds as smooth and appealing as when it was recorded. An album of warmth, intimacy and sensitivity.
