After Many Hiatuses, Sade is Releasing New Music
Written by Nette on February 20, 2018
Cherish the day: Director Ava DuVernay announced Tuesday that Sade has a song on the soundtrack for her upcoming film “A Wrinkle in Time.”
The soft-rock singer has taken many hiatuses throughout her illustrious career, and she hasn’t released a song or an album since 2010’s critically acclaimed “Soldier of Love.” Her song on the “Wrinkle in Time” soundtrack is called “Flower of the Universe,” according to DuVernay.
Considering Sade’s most recent stretch out of the limelight and the fact that she rarely grants interviews, DuVernay’s tweet about Sade’s involvement in the soundtrack is even more heartwarming.
“I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway. She was kind + giving. A goddess,” DuVernay wrote.
I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway. She 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. pic.twitter.com/FdXrZ1MFMO

Sade seems perfectly matched to DuVernay’s film, which the director described to Essence as “a love letter” to black women and girls.
This is exciting news for everyone…..
