The wait is over; Sade is back.
Breaking an eight year silence, following the release of 2010 album ‘Soldier Of Love’, Sade has recorded new music.
The track is titled ‘Flower of the Universe’, and has been made for Ava DuVernay’s new film ‘A Wrinkle In Time’, based on Madeleine L’Engle’s novel.
“I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway,” said DuVernay on Twitter.
She added: “[Sade] was kind + giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that I’ll never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. It’s entitled ‘Flower of the Universe’. And it’s a dream come true.”
