About Kodie Shane:

One of Atlanta’s freshest and fiercest voices, Kodie Shane has quickly become a unanimous fan and critical favorite. She offers a fresh take on Hip Hop and Pop, with tightly-wound rhymes, clever lyrics and ear-worm melodies over buoyant, genre-blurring beats that have become her calling card. Across 2016 and 2017, she made a name for herself by serving up a series of hits and critically adored projects. 2016’s debut EP Zero Gravity includes the fan-favorite “Sad” [feat. Lil Yachty], which generated millions of Spotify streams, followed by the runaway success of “Drip On My Walk.” Shane spent 2017 creating even more music, with the ten-track Big Trouble Little Jupiter mixtape and seven-track Back From The Future EP.

 

Across her releases, the artist has garnered praise from The Fader, Pitchfork, Complex, Noisey, Vogue, Pigeons and Planes, Paper, Nylon, W Magazine, Interview Magazine, Mass Appeal and more, with Billboard recently calling her one of 2018’s biggest Pop Stars to watch. Most recently, she covered Teen Vogue’s coveted 21 Under 21 Most Influential issue and Galore’s Spring 2018 Music issue. The budding star has also drawn rave reviews on the stage, having spent much of the past few years on the road, headlining shows around the world as well as opening for the likes of Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, The Internet, Jhené Aiko, Snakehips, Billie Eilish and more.  With Young HeartThrob, Kodie Shane has become the most exciting new artist to watch in 2018.

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

Sade widows press release

(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.

WIDOWS is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.  WIDOWS also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas, and Brian Tyree Henry.
