Sade Excitingly Returns With New Song For ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Soundtrack

Movies & TV

The forever elusive soulful chanteuse Sade is making a highly-anticipated comeback in a major way. The Nigerian-born U.K. bred singer is featured on the soundtrack for Ava DuVernay’s film adaption of A Wrinkle In Time. Sade’s new song is reportedly titled “Flower of the Universe.”

DuVernay made the announcement late Tuesday morning (Feb. 20) via Twitter, writing: “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.”

Considering how mysterious Sade’s relationship with being in the public eye is (she’s able to appear and return back into an enigmatic state of fixated ambiguity), this is a pretty big deal. Her last studio album, Soldier of Love was released in 2010. Since then, little is known of her whereabouts though she was spotted last year at one of Drake’s shows in London, Harper’s Bazaar reports.

A Wrinkle In Time has a star-studded cast including the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, and Mindy Kaling. In addition to Sade, its soundtrack will also include music from Kehlani, Chloe X Halle, Demi Lovato and Sia.

The film is set to hit theaters on March 9.
