From Hour columnist Brendan Murphy, check out the latest titular single from the upcoming Sade album Soldier of Love, her first since 2000's Lover's Rock. I was really hoping for a Cat Power duet with Ms. Sade Adu to pop up. Still holding out, I guess. This is, um, well, it's weird and sounds like Massive Attack produced it.
The release date is set for February 28, 2010, on RCA, with longtime band-mates like Stuart Matthewman (Cottonbelly) still along for the ride. Rumour has it that the video will be directed by photographer David Lachapelle in Los Angeles.
Mao Tse Tung famously said that it takes a single spark to ignite a prairie fire. The 21st century equivalent appears to be that it takes only a single Lil' Wayne reference to re-ignite a career.
