New D'Angelo!

I have been waiting since 2005 to say that.

Every five years, D'Angelo would emerge from his cave and release something amazing:
1995: Brown Sugar
2000: Voodoo.

In 2005, we waited. And waited. And waited.


That year, John Mayer endearingly wrote an open letter in Esquire, which said, in part:

I'm writing to ask you to put out a follow-up to one of the few records to change my life forever, Voodoo. When Voodoo came out in 2000, I stood in line at Tower Records in Atlanta at midnight to get it . . . I'm no less excited by it today than I was when I played it full blast in my mother's Plymouth Voyager on the way to my bullshit job.
Now, in honor of A's birthday, we have a new D'Angelo song.

Download from Idolator.

D'Angelo, Brown Sugar
D'Angelo, Voodoo.

From Live at the Jazz Cafe:
D'Angelo, Me and Those Dreamin' Eyes of Mine.
