Singer Emeli Sande says she wanted to “disappear” following the success of her debut album.

The 29-year-old singer, who tasted fame in 2012 with the launch of her hit release “Our Version of Events,” but she did not enjoy the subsequent attention, reported Female First.

“Sounds a bit dramatic but I just wanted to disappear. I just had this overwhelming sensation and realization that everything had to stop. And then slowly it did.

“In retrospect, I was like a pressure cooker waiting to pop. I had to stop and really look at myself and realise who I
was. That’s been the biggest lesson for me, learning to feel comfortable in who I am and what I represent and what I stand for,” Sande said.

The signer is making a comeback with her new single “Hurts”.

“I wanted to release “Hurts” first because it felt like everything I’d avoided saying for so long. It’s a real explosion. It’s everything I wish I’d said years and years ago. I didn’t want to hold anything back any more.

“I’m proud of my first album and thankful for the experiences it gave me, but I’m so much happier with my new album and with where I am in life,” she said.
