    Widespread freaking-out has commenced with the news that Sade will finally return with a new song, entitled "Flower of the Universe". The iconic singer has managed to retain an astounding relevance despite only releasing two albums over the past twenty-five years, a testament to her enduring mystique. Sade hasn't descended from her celestial plane since the release of her band's sixth album Soldier of Love all the way back in February 2010, and given her legacy in the music industry, this level of excitement is totally understandable.

    The news came courtesy of Ava DuVernay, director of the forthcoming Disney adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, who made the gushing announcement on Twitter.

    It's refreshing to see that even an Oscar-nominated director is as psyched as the rest of us. DuVernay also announced details of other artists appearing on the soundtrack, with each song treated to its own loving tweet. The other acts contributing original music to A Wrinkle in Time include Sia, Demi Lovato, DJ Khaled, Kehlani, Chloe x Halle, and FreeStyle Fellowship. Not content with merely building a star-studded soundtrack, the director also recruited Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi to compose the film's score.

    The rest of this news is great and all, but the general consensus seems to be that everything other than Sade is basically irrelevant. Fair enough. Anyone who was around to experience pre-recluse Sade is probably preparing for a nostalgia overload - Undoubtedly gearing up to force their children into watching A Wrinkle in Time and inheriting their love of neo-soul, jazz-infused sophisti-pop. Catchy.

    A Wrinkle in Time hits theaters on March 9th.
