Description

End of year surprise - D'Angelo drops his long long awaited new album, his first for 14 years. 12 tracks, 16 page insert. Includes tracks co-written by Q Tip, and session work from Questlove, along with D'Angelo's band, The Vanguard.

In the words of D'Angelo: "Black Messiah is a hell of a name for an album. It can be easily misunderstood. Many will think it's about religion. Some will jump to the conclusion that I'm calling myself a Black Messiah. For me, the title is about all of us. It's about the world. It's about an idea we can all aspire to. We should all aspire to be a Black Messiah.

It's about people rising up in Ferguson and in Egypt and in Occupy Wall Street and in every place where a community has had enough and decides to make change happen. It's not about praising one charismatic leader but celebrating thousands of them. Not every song on this album is politically charged (though many are), but calling this album Black Messiah creates a landscape where these songs can live to the fullest. Black Messiah is not one man, it's a feeling that, collectively, we are all that leader."
