You've already heard Emeli Sandé express her pain on her latest single "Hurts," and now you can watch it come to life. In the music video for her latest single, it's clear that Emeli is purging her feelings as we get moody graphics to match the dramatic track. The black and white visuals set the stage for all the emotions with stunning imagery, disorienting camera moves and surreal close-ups. We have crashing waves on the beach, a soaring eagle and a muscle man who brings even more to the mix when he dramatically takes off running. Emeli's role in the video is to express pain in her face and look beautiful at the same time. She executes effortlessly and leaves no emotions behind as we watch her truly bare her soul. Director Charles Mehling skillfully captures the essence of the single and holds you hostage as you watch the inner storm from a failing relationship and the pain it leaves behind.
The Scottish soul singer released her debut album Our Version of Events back in 2012 , so we're more than ready to hear what she has to offer on her new album. As the blonde songstress gears up for her sophomore release Long Live the Angels on November 11th, it's a pleasure to watch her dive back into the spotlight. If you want to hear more from Emeli, you can pre-order her new album on iTunes and get an instant download of the single. Until the full 15-track album drops, watch Emeli go through all the emotions in her latest video for "Hurts" right here.
