In hopefully encouraging news for D'Angelo's Voodoo followup (that he's been working on for almost 12 freaking years) a new song, potentially for that album, has been leaked online.
That song is "Black Hole Sun," and, yes, it is a cover of Soundgarden's 1994 hit. If this track is any indication, D'Angelo will remain true to his style; the song is a slow burner, soft but powerful, and definitely would have fit right in with his last release.
Listen to the song and Soundgarden's original below:
Beyond the new song, which was recorded in 2010, D'Angelo will be embarking on a tour this year and claims that the new album is "97% done." So, fingers crossed that at least of the albums by an artist I've been waiting on will get a release date soon.
