Sade’s new song, “The Big Unknown”, has arrived as part of the soundtrack for Steve McQueen’s new film, Widows. On Friday an accompanying lyric video was posted to the singer’s YouTube.
“It was an honour to work with such a legend,” said McQueen, on the collaboration with Sade. The official Widows soundtrack – which includes a score from Hans Zimmer – will get its first release, digitally, on November 16, the same date the film comes out in US cinemas. UK audiences can already see the film, as it was released on November 6.
Sade apparently has a new album in the works, but so far “The Big Unknown” marks only her second release in around seven years, coming after “Flower of the Universe”, which was released earlier this year for Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time.
