Sade to release her first new music in eight years on A Wrinkle In Time soundtrack

The elusive singer will finally make return this year with a new song.

Sade is releasing her first new music in eight years in 2018, it has been revealed.

The legendary artist has recorded a song called Flower Of The Universe for the soundtrack of upcoming film A Wrinkle In Time.

The movie's director Ava DuVernay shared the news on Twitter, admitting: "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."

It's the first new music from Sade in almost eight years. Her last studio album, Solider Of Love, was released in 2010. Her 2011 greatest hits album included four previously unreleased songs, including Love Is Found.

A Wrinkle In Time, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Chris Pine is released on March 23 in the UK. The film based on the 1962 science-fiction novel of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle, and follows a young girl called Meg on a mission to find her missing father.
