According to Philly.com, the singer allowed a camera crew to film her while working in London with U.K. stars, including Sam Smith, Emeli Sande, Disclosure and others.
“I came back to the States [after working with Disclosure] and was discussing it…with the chairman of Capitol Records… and he made it a bigger idea actually, he said, ‘Well, why don’t we have you go back to London, not to work with Disclosure only, but have you write with Sam Smith, Emeli Sande, Naughty Boy, all the English talent, and document the whole thing and call the album The London Sessions?'” Mary recalls.
She continued, “A camera was following me everywhere. You have to see the documentary on this. I mention it because we just got accepted into the Cannes Film Festival.”
The documentary will premiere at the annual French event, which kicks off May 15.
