The new track, "Soldier of Love," has drawn various reviews by music writers.
"Soldier of Love" finds Sade dropping a megaton bomb of inspiring and senses-smacking musical dynamite. More Maelstrom than Quiet Storm, this audiophile attention arrester is a razor-sharp reflection of the reamed-raw times we are now fighting through - artistically, morally, spiritually, financially, globally - yet penned with a lyric of vague obliqueness chased with defiant optimism into which everyone can slot their singular, personal cross to bear.

After nearly a decade, Sade will make her return to retail stores next year.
Sade is making music again. The soulful English group fronted by 50-year-old singer Sade Adu will release a new album Feb. 8, according to Epic Records. "Soldier of Love" will be the group's first studio album since 2000's "Lovers Rock." All five of Sade's studio albums have landed in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200, selling more than 50 million copies worldwide. (Associated Press)
Led by frontwoman Sade Adu, the group consists of three other members.
Sade, fronted by 50-year-old Sade Adu, have sold more than 50 million records worldwide since the release of their debut album, Diamond Life, in 1984. The group, made up of Adu and her long-time bandmates Stuart Matthewman, Paul Spencer Denmann and Andrew Hale, are best known for hits like Smooth Operator, Your Love is King and No Ordinary Love.
