Song of the Day: "The Big Unknown"

Sade are back ("are" because Sade is the band's name, and Sade Adu is the singer's name) with a second song that could garner an Oscar nomination (previously there was an original song they contributed to A Wrinkle in Time). This new song is from the upcoming Widows, starring Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, and Cynthia Erivo [Viola and Cynthia each lack 1 award for full EGOT--an Oscar here for Cynthia would finish her quest]).

While the song is downbeat, it is said to accompany a dramatic scene near the finale (it's similar in tone to "Skyfall" and "Writing's On The Wall"). If it does earn a nomination, it still has original songs from A Star is Born to beat, which may be tough.

Still, nice track, good to hear them again.
