If you ask me, it’s insane that it took so long for a proper big-screen adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. It feels like every kid since the dawn of time (OK, 1962) had to read the book at some point in elementary school, so a film basically means free money! Anyway, Disney and directorial hero Ava DuVernay finally made it happen. That’s not all—you can now listen to the official soundtrack, right here right now, before you head out to the multiplex.
This isn’t a huge collection of original songs—just seven songs, with two separate versions of Sade’s smooth-as-hell “Flower of the Universe”—before diving into selections from the original score by Game of Thrones and Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi. It also includes tracks from Sia, Kehlani, Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled, Grown-ish stars Chloe x Halle, and ‘90s hip-hop group Freestyle Fellowship.
The obvious draw here is Sade’s first new song in seven years, which streamed ahead of the soundtrack’s release earlier this week, but the rest make for a solid mini-LP for traversing all of time’s wrinkles and Oprah’s wild metallic look. Enjoy below!
