Sade are recording a new album during lockdown, which would herald their first new material in a decade.

It would be the British soul group's first full-length release since 2010's Soldier of Love, and only their seventh LP overall in a career that now spans nearly 40 years.

.

In a new profile by GQ, it is confirmed that the band - fronted by Sade Adu and featuring Paul Denman, Andrew Hale and Stuart Matthewman - are currently locked away working on the LP at Sade's house in Gloucestershire..

.

The news of new material also comes as the four-piece release the boxset compilation This Far today (Oct. 9), comprising of all six of their previous studio albums pressed on to vinyl and CD that have been remastered at Abbey Road.

.

The band themselves seemed to hint at new material on the horizon during the interview, stating that: "This Far alludes to a point in the road, not the end of it."

Sade have logged one Number 1 on the UK's Official Albums Chart with their second LP, Promise.

Their debut album, Diamond Life, had massive staying power, charting for 99 weeks in total, and containing the band's only UK Top 10 single, Your Love is King, which charted at Number 6 in 1984. It also took home the BRIT Award for British Album of the Year in 1985.

.

The four-piece have so far logged a total of seven UK Top 10 albums. These include five of their studio LPs as well as compilations The Best of Sade and The Ultimate Collection.

Altogether, they have a mammoth total of 211 weeks inside the Official Albums Chart.

Sade last dropped new music in 2018, collaborating with Kanye West producer No ID for the soundtrack cut Flower of the Universe.

I heard that she makes music once a decade. I also heard back in the day that she and Prince were acquainted to some extent and they may have worked on music together. If anyone can contact her and try to see if she can validate at least the musical part anything else I'm not concerned with.

Wasn't there an account of them making out at his piano when she was scheduled to record with him back in the 80's?

Fans always start the timer as soon as an album is out, but Sade is usually pretty good about promoting and supporting their work in concert. So really it's probably only been a few years since they were out of the Soldier Of Love headspace.
