You must set aside a quiet moment to watch the lovely and talented Emeli Sandé‘s brand-new music video for “Clown.” It’s a stunning and heartfelt track off her incredible debut album, Our Version of Events, which has safely secured a spot in my top twelve favorite albums of 2012 list. I need to get cracking on that post since there’s just about two weeks left before we ring in the new year. Here’s to discovering more new artists like Emeli next year.
It’s about how I felt when I was trying to get signed, I was going for all these meetings and people were looking at me like ‘What do we do with you’? It’s about not allowing yourself to be judged by others or to be taken for an idiot. I feel the video reflects that. — Emeli Sande
