Sade's first new music in seven years has been unveiled today.
The elusive artist has recorded a song called Flower Of The Universe for the soundtrack of upcoming film A Wrinkle In Time.
The song's producer, No I.D, unveiled the song online with the message: "A legend. Sade, it was an honor". No I.D's credits include tracks for Jay-Z, Kayne West, Nas and Common.
Sade's last studio album, Solider Of Love, was released in 2010, while 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 is 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.
The movie's director Ava DuVernay previously said of the collaboration: "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."
