D'Angelo Drops Surprise New Album, 'Black Messiah'

D'Angelo announced that his third album, Black Messiah, would be available tonight at midnight.

Black Messiah by D'Angelo and the Vanguard (2014): Meticulously crafted over the span of fifteen years, D'Angelo and the Vanguard's Black Messiah sounds instantly familiar, as if it's been a part of our pop-culture-conciseness for decades. This shouldn't be surprising considering that most of D'Angelo's influences stem from 1970's American folk, funk, and R&B. He immaculately emulates his icons on Black Messiah and ends up creating something fresh and uniquely D'Angelo.


Worth The Wait: The Transcendent Groove Of D'Angelo's 'Black Messiah'

Alongside the sultry, slow-moving expressions of romance fans have come to expect from D'Angelo are several songs that address social issues, notably race relations. In a written preamble to Black Messiah, the singer explains that the album title does not refer to himself, saying, "We should all aspire to be a Black Messiah." He references uprisings in Ferguson and in Egypt and "everyplace where a community has had enough and decides to make change happen."
