Sweet Architect

Album: Long Live The Angels (2016)
  • The period between Emeli Sandé's debut album, Our Version of Events and its follow up, Long Live the Angels saw her parting ways with both her husband, Adam Gouraguine, and longtime manager Adrian Sykes. This song finds her addressing God asking Him to help her wade through the fall outs.

    Oh dear heaven, I hope you're up to something
    Cause dear heaven, this just can't be for nothing
    We're still here, and we're, we're still breathing
    Yeah we're still here

    Sandé told PrideSource: "'Sweet Architect' is probably the rawest moment on the album, where I just - beyond relationships, beyond the music industry - this was my direct prayer to God. That's probably the rawest and deepest moment on the album."
