Even without D’Angelo, it’s an outstanding playlist, with contributions from Arca, Colin Stetson, and Queens of the Stone Age drummer J on Theodore.

This is D’Angelo’s very first release because his 2014 album Black Messiah, which, let’s face it, was the very best album launched that year.

Listening to the tune, I’m transferred back to 2015, when I saw D’Angelo and the Lead live at Forest Hills Arena in Queens– the transformed outside tennis courts were actually filled with midlife ladies swooning. It was the very best program I have actually ever been to, along with the closest thing to an orgy I have actually seen, and ever intend to see, in my life.

Let’s hope the track suggests more to come– an album, perhaps?
