It’s been almost 12 years since D’angelo released his successful cd Voodoo. And what a fantastic album it was (baby. making. music.)! Now, after a long hiatus, the singer is back and a much-anticipated cd is said to be released in late 2012/early 2013… I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it is as ah-mazing as his past work.
With the growing hype and suspense, D’angelo has released a creative, unique, funky, neo-soul rendition of the 1994 hit by Soundgarden, Black Hole Sun. Although it is far from the original, it is definitely worth a spin! Remixed and with new, original lyrics the D’angelo version of the track adds a stellar edge to this heavy rock song! I love that he has taken his creative energy and channeled it into re-crafting an already great song by making it entirely unique and artistic. I appreciate the use of his talent in making music that is accessible to many while also giving a rock track a crossover capacity in this neo-soul, even electronic , interpretation.
Below is the video. The track may sound a bit scratchy and thus it may be a demo version. I hope you enjoy! I recommend giving it a listen or two… Sometimes new things take a while to absorb, but sit back and open your mind and heart and allow the sweet music to fill the space! Enjoy the link below ;)
