A new Billboardcover story with Brad Pitt and French producer Damien Quintard has revealed details about Sade’s forthcoming album.

According to Billboard, the pair’s renovated Miraval Studios at Château Miraval, which has already been host to recording sessions for Pink Floyd’s The Wall, The Cure’s Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, and AC/DC’s Blow Up Your Video, has hosted Sade, whom Pitt calls “royalty.”

“You could feel the love that she and the band had for this place,” Quintard told the outlet.  “And when we talked to musicians who came here previously, they all have this special connection with Miraval that can’t really be explained … It’s a dream come true to see this place activate again.”

Sade released its last full-length offering, Soldier of Love, in 2010. Its sixth studio album, the LP followed 2000’s Lovers Rock, 1992’s Love Deluxe, 1988’s Stronger Than Pride, 1985’s Promise, and 1984’s Diamond Life.

Pitt and ex-wife Angelina Jolie purchased Château Miraval in 2012. The former has since operated it with Quintard, though Pitt has been in a legal battle with Jolie over the estate following the couple’s divorce. 

In fact, count document previously revealed that Jolie accused Pitt of abuse while on a flight a 2016 flight from Château Miraval to California. According to the complaint, Jolie filed for divorce a short time later.
