d-angelo

The moment is here. After hosting a exclusive listening session in New York City sponsored by Red Bull Music Academy and Afropunk on Sunday evening, D’Angelo’s long-awaited new album Black Messiah is here. Fourteen years after his 2000 opus Voodoo, the 40-year-old neo-soul singer and his band The Vanguard present a 12-track LP entirely recorded analog on two-inch tape. Revolving around the subjects of love and politics, Black Messiah features contributions from Q-Tip, Kendra Foster of Funkadelic, and Questlove of The Roots.

The album’s lead single “Really Love” will be serviced to radio on Monday, just days after the warm-up record “Sugah Daddy” was debuted by the Red Bull Academy. “Not every song on this album is politically charged (though many are), but calling this album Black Messiah creates a landscape where those songs can live to the fullest,” explains D’Angelo when speaking about the album title and theme of the record. “Black Messiah is not one man. It’s a feeling that, collectively, we are all that leader.”

Available for purchase now on iTunes, you can stream the album in full courtesy of Spotify.
