Audience Should Prep For A Musical Shift
D’Angelo only delivered two albums prior to retreating into the shadows after releasing Voodoo. The aforementioned album wasn’t a development of the sound that drove his critically acclaimed debut, Brown Sugar, to prominence in 1995. It was a progressively different body of work influenced by an array of genres — not limited to funk and soul — that was a hard pill to swallow to anyone old enough to digest it when it release at the top of 2000.
The singer-songwriter revealed that his upcoming album will be similar in that it won’t follow a traditional soundtrack, nor will it sound like anything you’re accustomed to hearing from him.
