Sade Releases First New Song In Nearly A Decade: “Soldier Of Love”

Sade has released her first new single in close to a decade, “Soldier of Love,” and we love it. Soul Culture calls it: “Moody, vibesome … and darkly rejuvenating,” and we agree. In the ’80s and ’90s, the British/Nigerian singer had a string of hits — “Your Love Is King,” “Smooth Operator,” and “No Ordinary Love” among them — but then she pretty much fell off the musical radar. If this single hints at what’s to come, we can’t wait for the Feb. 8, 2010, release of the Soldier of Love album. What do you think of the new track? Tell us in the comments.
