Oh my oh my oh my oh my. Today’s #MusicMonday has gained an additional ‘M’ and been renamed #MeltingMusicMonday. Black Messiah heralds the return of the wonderful talent that is D’Angelo, and this time around he is joined by The Vanguard.
We’ve chosen this track to share with you, pretty much only because it’s a live performance and so gives us more than choosing one of the other album tracks that are out there without any visual accompaniment.
This album, Black Messiah, shows us just how gifted D’Angelo is. When we first met this musical powerhouse, he delivered a fresh take on a traditional sound. He is still delivering a variation on that theme, but it in no way feels stale or tired. Oh, we missed you and your lilting, soul-melting, heartbreaking, knicker-wetting sound D’Angelo and we welcome you and your mates, The Vanguard, back into our earholes.
It’s out now and if you have any musical taste at all, you have surely bought this already.
