Four years on from giving their studio albums the box set reissue treatment, Sade have announced that all six titles will be receive individually.

The band's official website is currently hosting pre-orders for a remastered repressing of 1984's Diamond Life, 1985's Promise, 1988's Stronger Than Pride, 1992's Love Deluxe, 2000's Lovers Rock and 2010's Soldier of Love.

Like the editions included in career-spanning 2020 set This Far, all six reissues were remastered by the band and Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, and arrive pressed on 180-gram vinyl.

The albums are now available for pre-order via Sade's official website. Diamond Life, Promise and Stronger Than Pride will each arrive on June 21, while Love Deluxe, Lovers Rock and Soldier of Love will arrive on September 20.

While Sade have yet to share a follow-up to Soldier of Love, the band shared songs "Flower of the Universe" and "The Big Unknown" in 2018, each arriving as soundtrack contributions to Ava DuVernay's adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time and Steve McQueen's Widows, respectively.

In 2022, it was reported that the group were recording new music at Miraval Studios in Correns, France.

The biggest hint at a forthcoming seventh album from Sade came with the This Far box set, which includes an LP jacket-sized foam spacer branded with a question mark alongside the six albums. A press release for the reissue package also teased that "the band's studio work may not yet be fully complete."

Last year, Sade were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame
