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.
