First Sade CD In 9 Years Likely This Year

Sade fans, your wait looks like it could be almost over. Several indications point to a new CD by the reclusive singer this fall, which would be her first since Lovers Rock was released in November 2000. In addition to a post from the singer Maxwell, who has worked with both Sade and her band and says the CD is definitely coming out, Sade’s record label, Sony, has re-launched the singer’s official website in the U.S., sadeusa.com.

That’s where you can interact with fans at forums and sign up for updates. In addition, there are links to her MySpace and Facebook sites.

Sade, who has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, is best known for her many hits singles, including “By Your Side,” “Hang on To Your Love,” “Smooth Operator,” “The Sweetest Taboo,” “No Ordinary Love” and “Kiss of Life,” among many others. In 2005, Sade did compose a song called “Mum” specifically for a DVD called Voices of Darfur.
