SADE RELEASES NEW MUSIC “THE BIG UNKNOWN”, REVEALS OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO AVAILABLE NOW

(November 9th, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Sade releases a new original song entitled “The Big Unknown” from academy award winning British director Steve McQueen’s latest film, Widows.

 

The song is HERE via Sony Music Entertainment.

 

Widows, from Twentieth Century Fox, Regency Enterprises and See-Saw Films, is a feature-length adaptation of the UK television series of the same name. It opened in theatres across the UK on 6th November 2018.

 

Sade wrote “The Big Unknown” specifically for Widows’ final scene. Over a series of conversations with Sade, Steve McQueen encouraged her to dig deep within to write a song about loss and survival. The song “The Big Unknown” speaks to the film’s spirit, but upholds the classic hallmarks of her sound, and stands out as another bold and brilliant work from the legendary songstress.

 

In a recent Los Angeles Times interview McQueen was quoted: “It was an honour 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.”

 

“The Big Unknown” lyric video features McQueen’s cool contemporary Chicago scenes as a beautiful backdrop to lead character Veronica’s (Viola Davis) contemplation of a future unknown, and the dark times that led to that moment.

 

The Widows’ Original Motion Picture soundtrack album features Sade’s “The Big Unknown” and Nina Simone’s “Wild Is The Wind” alongside an intimate score by Academy® Award winner Hans Zimmer. The Widows’ soundtrack is on sale digitally on 9 November worldwide, in stores on CD on 30 November, and premium vinyl on 28 December 2018 on Milan Records.

 

Commanding high praise from all genres of the global musical landscape, Sade continues to redefine and remain culturally relevant.

 

Sade’s six studio albums have amassed a cool 70 million worldwide sales. Sade’s last album “Soldier of Love” charted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and the title track garnered a GRAMMY® Award, earning countless critical plaudits and accolades.

 

“The Big Unknown” was composed by Sade Adu and Ben Travers, and produced by Sade, Ben Travers and Aaron Taylor Dean.
