Well, we said to expect a new album from D’Angelo in 2015, but apparently it may come sooner than that! The much loved R&B/soul musician has announced his long-awaited follow-up to 2000’s Voodoo. The new album, Black Messiah, is credited to D’Angelo and the Vanguard and is reportedly finished with images of its completed packaging floating around Twitter. Now D’Angelo has revealed the new song, “Sugah Daddy”, which has been released as part of Red Bull’s 20Before15 series. Listen to it via Pitchfork below.
