The director shared the track, "Flower of the Universe," ahead of the film's release on Friday.

When Ava DuVernay approached Sade to create an original song for A Wrinkle In Time, she got the shock of her life. Sade said “yes.”

That song, “Flower of the Universe,” is now in full bloom. DuVernay shared the new track at midnight. “A late-night treat for all you Flowers (sic) of the Universe. My thanks to No I.D. And thank you to Sade Official. You are a queen and a visionary and we love you,” the director tweeted.

With a heavyweight cast featuring Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, A Wrinkle in Time is set to premiere on March 9. The soundtrack is set to include more original tunes from Sia, Kehlani, DJ Khaled and Demi Lovato, Chloe x Halle and FreeStyle Fellowship. Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi will help create the score.

"Flower of the Universe," Sade’s first new music since 2011, is out now and can be streamed here.
