Feburary 8th can’t come soon enough for us Sade fan as it marks the release of the groups first album in ten years, Soldier of Love. The response to the album’s first single “Soldier of Love” has been nothing short of massive but it hasn’t been enough to carry folks over til its release date. As with every highly anticipated release in this day and age we have seen a few more tracks come to light further solidifying this release as one of the finest so far this year. “Skin” is one of said tracks; the beautifully composed piece brings back memories of Sweetback and Sade of old.  A perfect example of how simplicity has its own beauty, and its pretty amazing how a band who discography has spanned three decades can outshine the lack luster pieces of work by more contemporary artist.
