D'Angelo return album has finally arrived!


  

Wow what a surprise this was. He has kept us waiting for some 14 years, but he comes back and still delivers strong material, so really, we can't be that mad. After all, he did leave us with, in this writer's opinion, one of the greatest albums of all time.

While you are at it, check out this great lil piece on the man and the mystique that surrounds him.

And if you've got 80 minutes to spare, this Red Bull Music Academy sit down he did with Nelson George earlier this year was quite enlightening.

Pharrell - Lost Queen

Pharrell Williams is a great producer and makes great tracks for other people but there is no better thing than when he is in the studio for himself going off on weird trips about whatever with no concern for whether the song is gonna be a hit or danceable or even make any damned sense. This song is one of the cases. I'm literally still in the middle of it and had to pause to post about it because it is just that perfect. This dude is my favorite weird. Love forever.
