The soul goddess known as Sade has graced us mere peasants with new music, this time in the form of the “The Big Unknown.” The track is from the upcoming Steve McQueen-directed Widows soundtrack — and it comes with a music video!

Somber in tone, the single channels a darker tone for the sensual artist, creating a complicated and uniquely Sade soundscape of inner turmoil.

“It was an honor to work with such a legend,” McQueen said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “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.”

We agree!

Eight months ago, Sade released “Flower of the Universe,” as part of Ava DuVernay’s The Wrinkle in Time soundtrack.
