R&B heartthrob D’Angelo has been MIA from the music scene for years now but he’s finally making a come-back. The singer is gearing up to drop his upcoming album and even plans to start touring in October. Billboard’s Kevin Liles explains why the project has been taking so long. “Here’s the thing: with D’Angelo it was a process. He didn’t perform for 10 years and he’s been working on an album for the past 12 years. I actually got him to go out and do 30 shows [in 2011-2012], and then we did some ‘Brothers in Arms’ shows. I said, ‘We have to get motivated around what people want to hear from you, and what does it mean to come back to that space?’ He very bluntly put it, ‘Kev, the studio and the stage: that’s my lifeblood. Now that I’ve touched it again, now that I see it again, I wanna be sure that the baby I’m about to have — the album — that I take it to the point where it’s all it can be.’” Be on the look out for D’Angelo’s new album coming to a store near you!
