Emeli Sandé has certainly returned to us with a vengeance. The Scottish songstress delivered her commanding comeback single last month, and today she returns with the compelling music video for “Hurts.”
Sandé belts out her powerful emotions throughout the black-and-white visuals, while standing over some large cliffs and at the water’s edge. Birds of prey soar around as waves wash in and her feelings wash out.
“Baby I’m not made of stone, it hurts / Loving you the way I do, it hurts / When all that’s left to do is watch it burn / Well baby I’m not made of stone, it hurts,” she sings on the anthemic breakup song.
“Hurts” is the lead single off Sandé’s sophomore album Long Live The Angels, which is due out November 11.
