A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay has unveiled the new songs for her upcoming Disney film, which sees groundbreaking female artists such as Sia and, yes, the glorious Sade taking centre stage right alongside main character Meg Murry.

DuVernay has released previews of some of the original songs created for the film, which all help tell the story of Meg (Storm Reid) as she travels throughout the universe in search of her father (Chris Pine). Chloe x Halle has “Warrior”, Sia created “Magic”, and there’s “Let Me Live” from Oakland artist Kehlani, which DuVernay said is the first song heard in the film.
WRINKLE IN TIME was made w/ love for young people. To share ideas about being a light in this often dark world. The new song “Warrior” by the phenoms @chloexhalle often makes me cry – with joy for the future. They are wonderful young women who help me hope. Thank you, ladies! pic.twitter.com/IZMyL0oEnQ

However, perhaps most exciting is the return of Sade, who created an original song called “Flowers In The Universe”. It’s the performer’s first new song in almost eight years. DuVernay said of her participation:
I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway. She was kind + giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that I’ll never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. It’s entitled “Flower of the Universe.” And it’s a dream come true.
In addition to the six original songs for the film, Game of Thrones and Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi is composing the score. Here’s a full list of the original songs.
- “Flower of the Universe” – Sade (plus a No I.D. Remix version)
- “I Believe” – DJ Khaled feat. Demi Lovato
- “Magic” – Sia
- “Let Me Live” – Kehlani
- “Warrior” – Chloe x Halle
- “Park Bench People” – FreeStyle Fellowship
A Wrinkle in Time comes out March 29.
