Sade On creating the perfect live show

R&B star talks about why her band didn't tour right away for 'Soldier of Love'

Rolling Stone

"When I do something, I want it to be great, like I want it to be the best suit you've ever made if you're a tailor, not polyester," Sade told Rolling Stone backstage at the kick off of her band's latest North American tour in Baltimore, Maryland. "I didn't want to go straight out when we first finished the album," she says, speaking of their 2010 record Soldier of Love. "I just wasn't ready for it. I want it to be amazing. We could go out and just sort of perform, but I think we've already done that in our recording. You've got to represent the music in a visual way."
