“Flower of the Universe” is British soul singer Sade’s first new release since her 2010 album Soldier of Love. The song was written for the A Wrinkle in Time OST, which also features contributions from the likes of DJ Khaled, Sia, and Kehlani. A remix of the song by legendary producer No I.D. was also released.
The original version of the song features piano, plucked guitar, and orchestral elements accompanying Sade’s beautiful layered vocals. For the remix, No I.D. puts the preexisting instrumentation and background vocals lower in the mix, and adds slow, steady percussion in his signature tight, crisp style.
