Brit Award winner Emeli Sandé is performing in Manchester next week to celebrate the release of her hotly-anticipated album, Real Life.

The Sunderland-born star will perform some of her new songs live and sign copies of the record at HMV Manchester in the Arndale Shopping Centre.

The intimate event kicks off at 5.30pm on Wednesday, September 18, with only a select few fans getting the chance to see Sandé in action.

The 32-year-old’s debut record, Version of Events, became the best-selling album in the UK in 2012 and 2013. Now she’s back with a sensational new album that marks a new chapter, and with it, a new sound.

Released on Friday, September 13, the album includes the single You Are Not Alone.

The 11-track album is inspired by the power of freedom, growth, and authenticity.

Speaking candidly about what fans can expect, Sandé said: “I just want to give people this incredible superpower every time they play the album. Like a battery pack – by the end of the album they’re going to feel restored.

Anyone wanting to get tickets to this exclusive event should head over to the HMV website. You can follow @hmvtweets and @hmvManchester for additional updates.

Those who aren’t lucky enough to be in attendance can catch Sandé when she performs at the O2 Apollo, Manchester on Wednesday, November 20 as part of her Real Life tour.
