Rumors have been circulating since July that Sade and her band are back in the studio working on what would be their 7th studio album. There are no official details about the release of the potential project. However, Sade did bless us with a new song entitled “The Big Unknown,” which released a few days ago (Nov. 9th).
The track was recorded for British director Steve Mcqueen’s new film ‘Widows.’ It was specifically written for the last scene of the movie. Its deeply passionate and emotional lyrics and rendition stay true to Sade’s signature sound. Mcqueen chose Sade for her deeply resonating sound. In an interview for the Los Angeles Times, he stated:
“It was an honor to work with such a legend. Sade is an incomparable talent and incredible artist who so rarely releases new material, but luckily the original series of Widows had deeply resonated with her.”
Sade and the band say they have a lot of new songs that they’re eager to share with the world. In an interview, band member Stuart Matthewman told Rated R&B:
“When we’re happy, then we’ll let everyone else hear it.”
