Emeli Sandé Turns To Twitter For Lyrics
Emeli Sandé wants her fans on Twitter to help her write a song. Asking the question, “what exhilarates you?” with a nice little video to pull at your heartstrings.
This is all really a great bit of social PR for Jaguar, though it’d be nice to think Emeli really wants to get her fans involved in her music, and I think we can give her the benefit of the doubt.
“I always thought It’d be cool to interact with the fans to create,” Sandé told Mashable. “The challenge is I don’t know what’s going to come at me, but it’s kind of like live music — when you get on stage, you don’t know how it’s going to go. My eyes are open to different feelings of exhilaration.”
It’s an interesting way to get your fans involved in your songs, making them feel part of the whole process, so when it comes on the radio they can proudly boast to their friends “That’s me!! I did that!! LISTEN!!”
Anyway, what do fans of Emeli have to say? Here are a few of the replies from her tweet:

At the moment it doesn’t seem to have caused a twitter storm but it’s an interesting idea. More bands might jump on the bandwagon in the future – fancy that, getting your tweet in a song.
If you’ve got something to share join in the #FEELXE hashtag on Twitter.
