D’Angelo‘s long-awaited follow-up to his classic 2000 album Voodoo is just around the corner. Now, we’ve got the first taste of Black Messiah, which is credited to D’Angelo and the Vanguard. The song is called "Sugah Daddy", and it has been released as part of Red Bull’s 20Before15 series. Listen to it above. 1,000 downloads are also available via the 20Before15 site.
The full album will debut later today at a New York City listening session sponsored by Red Bull Music Academy and Afropunk. The session will be hosted by author Nelson George.
"Sugah Daddy" has been part of D’Angelo’s live set since he returned to the stage in 2012. Below, watch him perform it live in London.
