D’Angelo Goes ‘Purple’ With Prince, ‘Crazy’ With Cee Lo

D’Angelo’s long anticipated album received a title and a surprising collaboration with ‘the purple one’ this week — Prince ! According to a statement from his manager, D’Angelo will sit down with Prince to record a song for his comeback album, now titled “James River,” soon. “James River,” D’Angelo’s first studio effort in nearly 9 years, is also sporting a collaboration with Gnarls Barkley’s Cee-Lo Green. Green joins Raphael Saadiq, Mark Ronson, and Roy Hargrove, who have already contributed to D’Angelo’s forthcoming album. In addition to “James River,” D’Angelo is plotting a return to the stage with a summer tour. D’Angelo’s last album, “Vodoo” featuring the single “Untitled (How Does It Feel),” reached no.1 on several charts.
