'Me and those dreaming " ears" of mine' are still waiting for D'Angelo....

Where is D’angelo?
2009 seems to be the year of all the comebacks Maxwell, Whitney, even Eminem .And then I asked myself where is " Mr Brown Sugar"?

I’ve been waiting all this time for D’Angelo’s third studio album just like you , and this year again nothing. We know he has been through a lot: pleading no contest to a felony cocaine-possession charge in 2005 and then a week later survived a car wreck then rehab.
In 2008, Virgin Records released a greatest-hits album which featured also a DVD that I still watch over and over again with guests musicians here and there but D’Angelo has been mostly absent from the scene. And then a new album has been announced titled "James River" with potential collaborators such as Prince, John Mayer, Cee-Lo Green, and Raphael Saadiq. Considering the fact that "Brown sugar "came out in 1995 and " Voodoo" five years later and that Maxwell also took a long time to be back ( not as long as D'angelo though) all I can do is keep waiting hoping for a masterpiece.

As most recent update Lindsay Guion, D’Angelo’s manager said that no collaborators have been confirmed. The artist is living and recording in Richmond,Virginia but also in New York, and he will deliver the tracks to his record company by September. Guion also said they have just signed a contract for a U.S. tour. In another words, we just have to keep waiting....

To help you wait here are two live videos of "Mr Brown Sugar"
