GET IN DEEP WITH D'ANGELO
Michael Eugene Archer, otherwise known as D’Angelo, he of the silky-smooth croon and Adonisian pelvic muscles, sits down with Nelson George, filmmaker, critic, and author of The Hippest Trip in America: Soul Train and the Evolution of Culture and Style, as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s month-long festival in New York City. (The organization has staged similar, engaging lectures with Erykah Badu and James Murphy.) D’Angelo’s history as a prodigiously talented and innovative singer and part of seminal neo-soul collective Soulquarians are fodder enough for conversation, and it’s possible he’ll shed some light on his long-time-coming third album tentatively scheduled for release this year, which he’s recording with Questlove.
