Sade Makes a Return With a Rare New Track for ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Soundtrack

The soundtrack for Ava DuVernay’s highly-anticipated film, A Wrinkle in Time, has been announced and it’s filled with music’s heavy hitters including Sade!

The 22 track soundtrack is set to feature songs from DJ Khaled, Kehlani, Demi Lovato, Sia, and Chloe x Halle. Most notably, one of the tracks will feature a new song by Sade! Titled “Flower of the Universe,” the track, which is remixed by No I.D., marks the songstress’s first track in eight years. “I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway. She was kind + giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that I’ll never forget,” DuVernay wrote on Twitter.

Along with serving as director, the award winning director also produced the soundtrack with a score composed by Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi. According to a press release, the acclaimed composer recorded the score with a 71-piece orchestra and a 29-person choir, as well as a 24-member children’s choir.

“Each song on the ‘Wrinkle in Time’ soundtrack was crafted with great care in close collaboration with the artists. My creative partnership with Sade on ‘Flower of the Universe’ was so connected that I reverse engineered the usual process and used her lyrics as actual dialogue within the film,” DuVernay said in a press release. “I truly loved working with DJ Khaled who jumped into this project with open arms and an open heart, along with the great Demi Lovato. Sia, Kehlani and Chloe x Halle beautifully embraced the visuals of the film to create distinct songs that expand and elevate Meg’s heroic journey. And working with Ramin Djawadi was a dream come true as I have been a long-time admirer of his stellar work. His musical compositions for the film are perfectly otherworldly.”

The live-action film is an adaptation based on Madeleine L’Engle classic novel. The sci-fi film will star Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and rising star Storm Reid. The soundtrack will be available digitally March 9, with the physical version available in retailers March 30.
