"Hold on Steady, Ladies and Gents...Here it Comes"

As Emeli Sande continues to ascend into greatness, she's reminding me more and more of the Queen of R&B, Alicia Keys. Vocally they're on another planet, as evidenced by Emeli's new one below off the upcoming Danny Boyle produced Trance movie. Yes, that's the same Danny Boyle that did the latest Olympics opening ceremony, Slumdog Millionaire and 28 Days Later.

First off, pump the brakes if you're expecting a trance song below just because it's going to be on the Trance soundtrack. Here it Comes is more like a jubilant, uplifting (think Lion King), mellow ballad that Emeli exercises every inch of her vocal chords on. It's got a swanky, tribal, upscale lounge sounding beat put together by Rick Smith of the English electronic band Underworld. Wait, I know why it sounds like the Lion King now, he did the score to the movie, which usually implies extravagant orchestra and complex sound layers. Literally, the light just went off as I was writing and listening to the track. Anyways, the movie comes out on April 5th and features the talented and sexy Rosario Dawson...#Trance
