Soul Fixin'

Send It On...

For a number of years we've been skeptical, much like the look on D'Angelo's face, of any whispers of a new D'Angelo release. This time around it seems like Michael Eugene Archer bka D'Angelo has finally got his sh*t together. I think it is safe to say that we can expect a D'Angelo album early next year via J Records. D' Angelo's Virgin Records contract was purchased by J Records in 2005. According to a source close to the project, the as-yet untitled album features collaborations with Raphael Saadiq. D' Angelo also plans to record with John Mayer. Let's keep our toes and fingers crossed.

On Tuesday, Virgin will release a CD/DVD retrospective, The Best So Far..., featuring hits, unreleased tracks and previously unreleased videos. Hopefully this compilation can hold us over until we hear some new sh*t.
