Sade — who beat out Adele as the highest earning UK music act in America in 2012 thanks to a comeback tour — is working on a new album.
Her collaborator Stuart Matthewman revealed in a new interview that he and the sultry singer have “a bunch of songs” for a follow-up to 2010 album “Soldier of Love.” “[Sade’s] not interested in the fame or any of that [other] stuff,” he told Rated R&B. “She likes to put out art. So when it’s ready, it will come out.”
Sade recently released her first new song in seven years for the Reese Witherspoon-Oprah Winfrey film, “A Wrinkle in Time.”
Meantime, Matthewman said Sade’s label, Epic, “knows there’s no point in nagging us or giving us deadlines. It doesn’t really help the process.”
She's written a new song for the Ava DuVernay-directed film A Wrinkle In Time.
Sade will break an eight-year silence with a new track for the upcoming film A Wrinkle In Time.
The movie, based on the classic Madeleine L'Engle novel, was directed by Ava DuVernay, who took to Twitter to reveal Sade's involvement. "I never thought she'd say yes," DuVernay says, "But asked anyway." (Read the full tweet below.) The song is called "Flower Of The Universe," and according to Entertainment Weekly, it's also been remixed by Chicago hip-hop producer No I.D.
Sade and her band's last studio album, Soldier Of Love, came out in 2010.
