D’Angelo Is So “Deep In The Recording Process” On A New LP, He Postponed His Tour To Keep Working

first_imgThis week, neo-soul pioneer D’Angelo was scheduled to be in the midst of an 8-date European run. However, all of the upcoming shows were recently postponed until late June or July. In a statement obtained by British music publication NME, D’Angelo’s management explains:“As D’Angelo has been working in the studio, deep in the recording process, he apologises 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.”The R&B/soul maven earned enormous commercial and critical success with his first two albums, Brown Sugar (1995) and Voodoo (2000). However, particularly following the release of the video for “Untitled (How Does It Feel)“, the lead single from Voodoo, D’Angelo began to feel uncomfortable with his growing “sex symbol” status. The discomfort he felt toward that distinction, in addition to a bevy of other adverse personal situations, led D’Angelo to step away from the spotlight at the peak of his fame, beginning a hiatus from the public eye which lasted nearly 14 years.He finally resurfaced with the release of his universally-acclaimed third LP, Black Messiah, in 2014. The album was a critical smash, debuting at #5 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and #1 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. Considering the high quality of all his previous efforts, we can’t wait to hear what D’Angelo is cooking up in the studio!Tickets purchased for the March European run will be valid at the rescheduled shows.
