D’Angelo Puts Out Video Footage of New Album Recording Sessions
While he himself hasn’t put out a direct statement, D’Angelo continues to work on a follow-up to 2000’s Voodoo, now a classic R&B album. The latest to provide information about the long-in-the-works release is producer Russell “The Dragon” Elevado, who put up a couple of videos recently of the singer and two studio guitarists.
The footage, which can be seen below in two brief clips, involves Pino Palladino and James Gadson playing, while D’Angelo sings in the background. Unfortunately, the time is too short to actually get a feel for a tune, so listeners still remain in the dark.
A year ago, Questlove told Billboard that D’Angelo was nearly done, claiming they were putting in long hours in the studio. Talking about recording drum parts for the release informally called James River, Questlove said: “He's the only person that I'll actually go to the studio with and stay there to six in the morning, re-doing these drum parts. I won't even do that for my own band, but I'll do it for him. Right now, we're just tightening up the loose ends. But I still stand by, 99% of it is done."
