We're not one for teases unless they come from this man -- and D'Angelo knows how to tease well. You won't find a release date for his upcoming album, off which a few songs have been circulating for several years, or a website with news updates or upcoming performances. But if you witness a show like the one he put on earlier this week, you'll realize you don't really care as much as you thought you would. The spine-tingling singer and multi-instrumentalist employed his God-given talents to a sold out Brooklyn Bowl on Monday. The show was also headlined by good friend ?uestlove, who supported on the drums. According to the New York Times, it was an intimate show, meant for nothing but playing good music. Live footage of the performance was beautifully captured by our friends over at Okayplayer.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H54p11ywUU&feature=youtu.be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4MLhjHHnTQ
Being that 2012 was the first year D'Angelo began performing live since 2000, any forthcoming performances by the heralded singer will be highly anticipated, as will his upcoming album, which he claims is nearly finished. If nothing more than a really well-executed (albeit, unintended) PR stunt, it's an important reminder that good things come to those who wait.
