Art of the Cover - Sade's "Promise" (1984)

Granted, it’s quite hard for a photographer to take a bad photo of someone as super sumptuous as Sade Adu, a former model. But this shot's extra special, somehow managing to capture the essence of her music’s - that odd and delightful tantalising combination of twilit warmth and definite distance.

Sade looks cautious here, keeping arms around herself so as not to let you in. At the same time though, there's hope that you might have the chance to unravel some of those fascinating secrets.
