D’Angelo has finished Black Messiah, his first new album in 14 years


D’Angelo has finished his first new album in 14 years and will premiere it to the public during a listening session in New York on Sunday, December 14th. The follow-up to 2000’s Voodoo is titled Black Messiah and attributed to D’Angelo and his band the Vanguard.

Fans can RSVP to the listening session, which is being hosted by renowned African American writer Nelson George. The event takes place at the Dream Hotel in Chelsea beginning at 4 p.m.

In anticipation, the website for D’Angelo’s manager, Kevin Liles, has shared a brief teaser trailer for the album.

There is some speculation that the album could be released to the general public as soon as December 16th, as photographs of the album’s jewel case are currently floating on Twitter.

D’Angelo has already announced a tour behind the LP. “The Second Coming Tour” is set to kick off February 11th in Switzerland.
