Behold, a Christmas miracle!!!
D’Angelo has just announced the title of his long-awaited, near-mythical new album – the followup to 2000’s magnum opus Voodoo.
Appropriately titled Black Messiah, the LP is officially credited to D’Angelo and the Vanguard. The announcement is marked by short teaser which presumably featurs a snippet of new music off the album. Furthermore, an event chaired by Nelson George and sponsored by Red Bull Music Acedemy and Afropunk will debut the project in New York this Sunday (!!). Posters of the Black Messiah artwork have been spotted around the city…
D hits London town in February as part of his new European tour, so expect to hear fully formed new songs… you’ll find us somewhere near the front losing our minds (again).
Now excuse us while we go clean our brains off the ceiling… #ohmygod.
Update: It has been confirmed that Black Messiah will be released on iTunes tonight at midnight (EST)! Get ready, only a few hours to go!
