This is the first release from the legendary singer since her 2010 album, Soldier of Love, which spawned the single of the same name.
Sultry and cinematic, the track hears Sade's smooth voice gliding over a percussive, suspense-inducing beat. The official soundtrack for A WRINKLE IN TIME is set for release this Friday 3/9. The OST arrives on the same day. "She was kind and giving". It's been almost seven years since we heard new music from one of music's most-prized and most intermittent voices - but all it took, apparently, was a request from director Ava DuVernay.
The movie's director Ava DuVernay previously said of the collaboration: "I never thought she'd say yes, but asked anyway. It's entitled 'Flower of the Universe.' And it's a dream come true". The song fits neatly into the pantheon of Sade, a silkily ethereal and all-encompassing lullaby of sorts.
The song's producer, No I.D, unveiled the song online with the message: "A legend". The soundtrack will also feature "I Believe", a new collaboration from DJ Khaled and Demi Lovato that will play during the film's closing credits.
