Sade Flower Of The Universe A Wrinkle In Time

'Flower Of The Universe': Sade Returns Right in the Nick of (A Wrinkle In) Time

In times of turmoil, Sade has returned to us with a precious, time and space-transcending present. It's been seven long years since we last heard from the notoriously private Queen Sade Adu and company, following the release of their The Ultimate Collection in 2011. As promised by director Ava…


Jessie Ware: Devotion (Album Review)

While Adele continues to conquer the world with her record-breaking 21, an honest collection of bluesy, rollicking odes to heartbreak and sorrow (which is still the best-selling record of 2012, despite being released last year), England may well have just found themselves their next humble…


Sade to Release 'The Ultimate Collection' on May 3

On May 3, Sade will release The Ultimate Collection, a 2-CD, 29 track collection of the group's most iconic songs, including four brand new tracks. The legendary front-woman of the group has already uploaded three of the four new tracks from the collection, including "I Would Have Never Guessed,"…


And The Winner of X Factor 2010 Is...

KATIE WAISSEL. What? Oh. Just kidding. It's Matt Cardle. As I said in my wrap-up of the final performance night, I blame Christina Aguilera for Rebecca Ferguson's loss. I like Matt, but you'd have to be a damn fool to believe he's going to push more albums than anyone else this season. For now I…


Last Dance, Last Chance: A Very Thorough X Factor Final Performance Night Review (December 11)

THIS IS IT, as one of the X Factor judges famously sang 17 years ago (oh my God, 17 years?!): The STAR-STUDDED X Factor final show is finally upon us! And thank God, because I'm totally over it.


Sade: Babyfather (Video Premiere)

Above is the video for "Babyfather," the second single off of Sade's incredible February release, Soldier of Love. From the deserts of "Soldier of Love" and into the kitchen, Sade has certainly made quite the about face for her band's latest video. How gorgeous does she look here? Unbelievable.…

Sade: Soldier of Love (Album Review)

Soldier of Love, Sade's first studio album in over ten years, comes sandwiched in between two rather auspiciously timed events: heavy blizzards and Valentine's Day. What else should be softly playing in the background than the warm, romantic layers of a Sade record? The musical influences found on…


Beyond the Battlefield: A Behind-the-Scenes Glimpse at the Recording of Sade's New Record, Soldier of Love

Click here to watch Sade's incredible mini-documentary tracking the creation of Soldier of Love, their first album in a decade. It's a longer video, but it offers a rare glimpse into a recording studio filled with talented musicians working to make real musical magic. Some of the greatest…


Sade: Soldier of Love (Video Premiere)

Check out the newly uploaded video for "Soldier of Love," Sade's first single in a decade. Sade herself looks as gorgeous as ever. I love the lush feel of the warm color palette against the violent, raging storms in the background--very striking visually. The video's focus on sharp, militant…


Coming to Record Stores Near You: MuuMuse's Most Anticipated for 2010.

Photo courtesy of Suck.com. Year-end wrap up lists are nice and all, but it's the "Most Anticipated" lists that are way more fun for me to read. The rumors! The possibilities! The inability to foresee a terrible album in the making! Who can resist the sweet, succulent taste of possibility? Of…
