It has been a long 14 years since D’Angelo released his last album, Voodoo, which included the hit single "Untitled (How Does It Feel)."
Well, according to new leads, the soul crooner will release his long-delayed follow-up, Black Messiah, featuring his band, The Vanguard, which includes bassist Pino Palladino, guitarists Jesse Johnson and Isaiah Sharkey, keyboardist Cleo “Pookie” Sample and drummer John Blackwell, this month. In fact, the project is reportedly hitting stores on December 16, 2014.
The project is billed somewhat of a surprise, due to no lead singles, and minimal promotion, which includes the below 15-second video.
Last month, D’Angelo announced an upcoming 13-stop European tour, which takes flight on February 11, 2015 in Zurich, Switzerland and makes stops in London, Germany, and Sweden before wrapping March 7th in Brussels, Belgium. The tour is expected to come back to the U.S. in 2015.
So folks, both D’Angelo and his fans have grown up a lot since his last release, do you think this album will be magical for the present?
