On their first studio effort in a decade, it’s mostly business as usual for smoky vocalist Sade and the band that bears her name. “Morning Bird,” “Long Hard Road,” “Skin” and other ballads tap a familiar jazz-infused R&B vein. The only departure is the title track, a romantic call to arms with a martial groove. It makes you wish Sade would declare war on predictability. Out Tuesday, Feb. 9.
