My buddy Questlove sheds some light on D’Angelo‘s super hush upcoming album, even going as far as giving us a little taste. via okayplayer.com

“Here’s the deal: 11 songs are done. Most need lyrics. Most are in the 7-9 minute range. All are epic as ****. Most need a haircut. @#%$ I love. But @#%$ I know the marketplace ain’t even ready for. If “Untitled” video is what got him over on the idiot side of things, he is gonna have to get his physical game back and come with some strong ass imagining to make up for the fact that there will be no radio friendly single–newbies I’m warning you now, if you want to “understand” this record–you must purchase and study the following: [Funkadelic’s] Maggot Brain, America Eats Its Young, Cosmic Slop, Standing on the Verge of Getting It On, Let’s Take it to the Stage, Tales of Kidd Funkadelic, [Sly & The Family Stone’s] There’s a Riot Going On, [Miles Davis’] On the Corner, [Shuggie Otis’] Inspiration Information, [Brian Wilson’s] Smile, [the Beatles’] Abbey Road, Revolver, [Jimi Hendrix’s] Electric Ladyland, [the Sex Pistol’s] Nevermind the Bullocks Here’s the Sex Pistols, [Prince’s] Dirty Mind, [Tony Williams’] Ego and Emergency!. Study and absorb and research this @#%$ now. Memorize it. Understand why the albums I mentioned were important in their historical context. Lower your expectations. This will throw you for a loop.”
