Near the top of 2018, Sade made a welcomed return with some rare new music. It was the songstress’ first release in seven years to be exact. The British Nigerian singer blessed the soundtrack to Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle In Time with “Flowers Of The Universe.” The song received two mixes, one being by longtime Hip-Hop producer No I.D. (Common, JAY-Z, Killer Mike). “Flowers…” was Sade’s second original song contribution to a soundtrack following 1986’s Absolute Beginners cut “Killer Blow,” which Sade performs in the film, starring David Bowie.

She did not keep fans waiting long for another song, and it also belongs to a soundtrack. Belonging to director Steve McQueen’s Widows, “The Big Unknown” is the kind of song that only Sade can seem to make incredible. “Only love could bring us, bring us to this bitter plane / Only one of us, who’s gonna walk away? / Here in the deep below, that only darkness really knows / I’m hoping for a humble seed to grow / No, I won’t surrender to this hard-hearted night / Though I know the sun’s gonna bring the palest of light / And all that remains is everything has gone / This life is mine so I’ll carry on,” croons the 59-year-old.

Although brooding and delivered with an acknowledgment of personal pain and loss, the song shows its hope. “I will rise again / A humble seed will grow” is the closing lyric in the chorus. The music is co-produced by Sade along with her writing collaborator Ben Travers, as well as Aaron Taylor Dean.

Dramatic sequences from the film appear in “The Big Unknown” lyric video. The Widows soundtrack releases next Friday, November 16. Sade’s last album was 2010’s Soldier Of Love.
