D’Angelo Releasing Long-Awaited New Album, ‘James River,’ After 11-Year Absence

Virgin Records

Eleven is the average age of the Justin Bieber loving tween.

It’s also the number of years it’s been since D’Angelo, one of the most influential artists during the neo-soul movement, released new music. That’s about to change, though, because the Grammy winner’s new album, ‘James River,’ is expected later this year.

According to Questlove, the follow-up to D’Angelo’s  last album is currently in the works. The Roots drummer tweeted from his session with the singer “most people use midnight as a time to sleep. Others are working on their 11 year followup.This of course being hour number one. #sqrntweet”.


Since the release of his last album, ‘Voodoo,’ D’Angelo — who went on to add 40 pounds to his once-lean figure —  has kept a low profile, although he has had some brushes with the law, including trying to pay an undercover cop for sex last year. In 2005, he also received a three-year suspended sentence for cocaine possession and had his license revoked for 18 months after he was busted for marijuana possession and drunk driving.
