In an interview with Rolling Stone, D'Angelo has revealed that he is currently working on a "companion piece" to his latest album, the 14-years-in-the-making Black Messiah; the singer says that the new body of work is made up of leftover material created during the the album's recording sessions.

"I hope people receive it that way. It's part of the same vision," he said in the interview. "I had to get out of my head. Because there were so many songs that I wanted people to hear."

He continued:

"I want to do what Yahweh is leading me to do. Do I know fully what that is? No, I don't. I'm trying to keep myself open, my heart open, to receive and to know what that is. But I do want to put a lot of music out there. I feel like, in a lot of respects, that I'm just getting started."

Seems like D'Angelo has had a lot of time to think about music in the fourteen years between Black Messiah and the album prior, Voodoo. I bet a lot of artists wished they felt like they'd just started out.

Back in April, D'Angelo announced a bunch of tour dates with his band The Vanguard, including a one-off show at The Roundhouse in Camden, London.
