A few days ago, D’Angelo cancelled his current plans for a performance at London’s Eventim Apollo. Originally scheduled for March 6, the show was reportedly postponed in order to give D’Angelo the time needed to finish new material. As a press statement given to NME explains:
“As D’Angelo has been working in the studio, deep in the recording process, he apologizes to any fans that this announcement might impact and is excited to see you all in June. We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation and look forward to an amazing tour.”
With the show rescheduled for June 21, it looks like D’Angelo might have some new sounds to add to this year’s summer lineup. If we’re lucky, we might even get a new album by year’s end. D’Angelo’s previous full-length studio effort, 2014’s Black Messiah, was met with an astounding wave of critical acclaim and adoration from fans; it also spawned several live runs. That LP was his first in 14 years, having been preceded by the classic Voodoo.
D’Angelo’s last release was a remastered reissue of his debut album Brown Sugar>.
