Was 2010 really the last time we heard new music from perineal GFM Fave Sade? The only reason I lead with that question is that for many of us Sade always finds a way into our listening moments throughout the days, weeks and month that the sound is with us. Yes technically when you say Sade your speaking about the entire group as opposed to just Ms. Adu but specifics aside the unmistakable vocal stylings of one Helen Folasade Adu are up close and personal here on “Flower Of The Universe” from the A Wrinkle In Time soundtrack. With producer No I.D., Sade has crafted a contemplative, expansive sonic landscape that feels like a superb fit for the Disney cine play directed by Ava DuVernay.

The A Wrinkle In Time soundtrack is our March 9 and also features contributions from Kehlani, Sia, DJ Khaled, Chloe + Halle and more.
