Sade Is Recording At Brad Pitt’s Miraval Studios

Superstar singer Sade was one of the first musicians to step through the doors of Brad Pitt and Damian Quintard’s renovated Miraval Studios in France.

The singer, Hollywood actor described as “royalty,” producer Quintard stated to Billboard magazine:

“You could feel the love that she and the band had for this place.” “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.”

Founded in 1977 by jazz pianist Jacques Loussier and sound engineer Patrice Quef, the recording studio was in operation until the mid-2000s, but hasn’t been in use since 2011 when Pitt bought it with his then-wife Angelina Jolie.

Discussing the Sade experience, Quintard teased that the Sade session was “fantastic” and he told SPIN magazine:

“Sade is very special for Miraval and the legacy of the studio.” “We were ecstatic when she arrived and for her to be the first artist to record again here… Some of the great moments of the studio are when you combine the past with the future.” “It’s been a pleasure to see the artists create in the studio and live within the property. There’s a big artistic community in Miraval, whether it’s wine-making, painting, sculptors or artists. “We make our own honey. We have a cross-pollination of many different styles and genres, and that’s what creates sparks. It’s a big part of the experience that we propose to the artists.”
