Just as I began my third full listen of Sade’s sensational new album Solider of Love, this came through my inbox. Sade covers the latest issue of POP Magazine, but there’s an interesting story behind it…

The controversial artist Richard Prince, whose Spiritual America nude of a teenage Brooke Shields was recently withdrawn by the Metropolitan Police from the Tate gallery, has collaborated on the new issue of POP magazine. In looking to celebrate ‘Pop Women for 2010’, Richard Prince has produced a special tribute to Sade, who has just returned to the public arena after ten years with the “Soldier Of Love” single and album.

Prince has produced a beautiful hardback edition of POP with Sade on the cover that follows the format of his acclaimed Celebrity art series. Using eBay, Prince sourced a super rare, unique image of Sade from her first ever magazine photo shoot for The Face in 1984. The black and white photograph shows Sade with her hair worn down for almost the only time in a photo session. The New York-based artist then teamed this exclusive rare image with a handwritten note Sade had sent him that teasingly reads: “Richard, still my Cowboy, love Sade”. A trademark Prince Cowboy completes the stunning artwork for the POP cover.

Hit the jump to check another picture from the magazine. And get Solider of Love – it really is a stunning album. Her voice sounds strong as ever and the live instrumentation on it is just gorgeous. Welcome back.

Peace, Love & Sade


P.s POP Magazine, send me a copy please. Lol.
