"I'm just trying to hold on / I'm falling in the dark below / I feel I'm falling in the big unknown," Sade sings. "There's no fire and flame on this cold, cold plane / No way to measure my pain."

This is the second song that Sade has contributed to a soundtrack in 2018 (the first being "Flower of the Universe" for Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time).

"It was an honor to work with such a legend," Steve McQueen says. "Sade is an incomparable talent and incredible artist who so rarely releases new material, but luckily the original series of Widows had deeply resonated with her."

Sade last released their album Soldier of Love in 2010. Widows and its soundtrack arrive November 16th, with physical releases of the Hans Zimmer-scored soundtrack to follow.
