It’s media-blitz week for the Ice Queen, which, if she herself is to be believed, Sade does not enjoy, at all. But she rips into “Soldier of Love” here anyway — everyone’s ultra-somber expression might amuse you at first, but eventually she tears into her new record’s title track with aplomb. Dave (“I need a drink!”) is quite impressed. Note though the very weird “Craig [FERGUSON!] is next” overdub (shorter version here). What last name did he say instead? Kilborn? Hodges? Finn?
