Sade Songs to Cry to

Sade is slowly, but surely returning to the world.

Earlier this year, the UK legend contributed a song to the soundtrack of Ava Duvernay‘s A Wrinkle In Time adaptation. Now, she’s doubling-down on the big screen suites, releasing her contribution to the upcoming heist film, Widows, from director Steve McQueen.

A piano-led ballad, “The Big Unknown” is spacious and subtle, leaving plenty of room for the singer’s silk vox to thread the cut with minimal accompaniment. The film’s director stated, “it was an honour to work with such a legend.” The rest of the Widows score is provided by Hans Zimmer, and will arrive on the day of the film’s release. “The Big Unknown” and her A Wrinkle In Time composition mark the singer’s first new songs in seven years.
