After that of Helen Folasade Adu, the return of Michael D’Angelo Archer is easily the most anticipated  music. It almost seems unfair to let loose unfinished, unmastered test-drives he takes in the studio to a thirsty and critical fanbase but after waiting this long it’s hard not to.

D’Angelo’s “Voodoo” Still Casting Spells 10 Years Later

This little nugget called “1000 Deaths” popped up in my inbox and I couldn’t help but post it. Longtime collaborator ?uestlove says, “for the record I had absolutely nothing to do with this leak. I have a version of this but this was back in 2005. This is way more developed than the version I had.” He dates it to around 2008-2009.

THE LEAK: Sade “Skin,” “In Another Time,” “Moon”

Half of it is passionate moaning and incoherent exclamations but the funk is undeniable. (Producers take note: open drums at around 6:12. Smoke ’em if you got ’em.)
