Sade Penned a New Song for 'A Wrinkle in Time'
The soundtrack also features Sia, Kehlani, Chloe x Halle, and Demi Lovato & DJ Khaled
It's titled "Flower of the Universe," and although we won't get to hear it just yet, DuVernay described the experience of working with Sade as "a dream come true."
"I never thought she'd say yes, but asked anyway," the director tweeted, adding that Sade was "kind," "giving" and just a "goddess" in general.
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. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. It's entitled "Flower of the Universe." And it's a dream come true. pic.twitter.com/FdXrZ1MFMO— Ava DuVernay (@ava) February 20, 2018
The song marks Sade's first new material since releasing Soldier of Love in 2010, though the project has since released a greatest-hits comp and a live album.
Other contributors to the soundtrack include Sia, Kehlani, Chloe x Halle, and a collaboration between Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled.
Sade. Demi Lovato + DJ Khaled. Sia. Chloe + Halle. Kehlani. All together with our dope composer Ramin Djawadi. You know that epic GAME OF THRONES theme song? Yep, that's @Djawadi_Ramin doing his thing. Our soundtrack + film enter the universe March 9. xo https://t.co/rJa9coB8pb— Ava DuVernay (@ava) February 20, 2018
