Listen to the first new Sade song in 7 years

It was recently announced that director Ava DuVernay, while compiling her work A Wrinkle In Time, had managed to gain a great coup. No, not a major Hollywood star, nor a budget increase. No, Ava had managed to track down, and receive a ‘yes’ from Sade.

The elusive singer hadn’t released any music since her 2011 release The Ultimate Collection which featured a few bonus cuts. But DuVernay managed to get a brand new song from Sade titled ‘Flower of the Universe’ to contribute to her film.

And now, thanks to her producer No I.D. we can all share in the joy of the one and only Sade’s vocal. And it is, as you might imagine, quite spectacular, otherworldly- and frankly astounding.
