And on December 15 music lovers freaked out in the best way possible as D’Angelo released his first new album in nearly 15 years when he dropped Black Messiah. The album is up on Spotify (see below) and click HERE to read a post from NPR Music and one HERE from Pitchfork.
On a personal level, it well into the night between June 9 and 10, 2012 we were deep in the middle of nowhere Tennessee (Manchester to be exact) at Bonnaroo inside This Tent for ?uestlove’s Superjam when we heard one of the most amazing and yet familiar voices on vocals. It was in fact the voice of D’Angelo, gracing the stage for the first time in 12 years. At that moment my friends and I looked at each other in amazement and were captivated by the R&B crooner. I didn’t think it could get better. Today it has. Welcome back, D’Angelo!
