It's Seal's turn to be 'Amazing' in lead single


Seal, (born Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel) has returned with an album titled, System and its single, "Amazing" is that, amazing. Listening to the White Thin Duke's Remix (courstey of Staurt Price, Madonna's producer of 2005's Confessions on a Dance Floor). Seal is one of the few artists who can move a crowd. The Grammy-award winner has found a reason to come back. In previous interviews he has explained his reason for gaps between albums. The bottom line is finding inspiration.

But with the single, "Amazing" there is substance. He said it would be more dance-oriented, apparently a return to the roots of his first album. In one track titled "Wedding Day," Seal sings a duet with his wife and model Heidi Klum.

The lyrics display that dance quality:

Everyone says you’re amazing now that you’re clean
Only you know the real ones are cause you’ve seen
There’s only one question I want to ask is it here and
When, does anybody ask you?

Cause I know that you’re real, amazing, amazing, amazing

Everyone says you’re amazing now that you’re clean
Only you know the real ones are cause you’ve seen
There’s only one question I want to ask is it here and
When you….
Everyone says you’re amazing

Everyone says you’re amazing
(I want you to always feel you’re amazing)
Everyone says you’re amazing
(I want you to always feel you’re amazing)
Everyone says you’re amazing
(I want you to always feel you’re amazing)
(I want you to always feel you’re amazing)

With it's shimmering melodies, layers of synths and acoustic guitar, and electronic beats, with "Amazing" just being a sample, is a return to my roots says the singer-songwriter. To help him deliver a more dance oriented album, what he calls a quintessential Seal album, Seal turned to Price and and is also known for his Grammy-winning remixes for No Doubt and Coldplay).
