Sade announce career-spanning vinyl boxset – This Far
Written by worlddancefm on 17th September 2020
Sade are releasing a boxset called ‘This Far’ featuring all six albums the band have released across their acclaimed career: ‘Diamond Life’ (1984), ‘Promise’ (1985), ‘Stronger Than Pride’ (1988), ‘Love Deluxe’ (1992), ‘Lovers Rock’ (2000), and ‘Soldier Of Love’ (2010).
The albums have been specially remastered at Abbey Road Studios by mastering engineer Miles Showell and the group’s regular co-producer Mike Pela with input from each band member: vocalist Sade, saxophone and guitar player Stuart Matthewman, keyboardist Andrew Hale, and bassist Paul Spencer Denman. Each album comes on 180-gram heavyweight black vinyl, packaged in a white casebound box.
The boxset comes out on Sony Music on October 9, marking the first complete collection of Sade’s album back catalogue, which has been certified platinum 24 times with 60 million worldwide sales.
Later that year, Stuart Matthewman said the group are “working on a new album”, although no release date has been set.
