D’Angelo Covers Soundgarden, Allegedly Readies New Album


This is like a strange dream you might’ve had back in ’94, when your REM-addled brain segued into a strange, grainy and jazzy cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” by none other than D’Angelo. Ideally, his version would not be accompanied by the mental image of the menacing, grin-expanding neighbors featured in the original video. Then again, it’s hard to sound as menacing as Chris Cornell. Is this demo a precursor of things to come? Rumor has it that D’Angelo is back and ready to wash away the pain of his protracted absence with a new album sometime this year. Contributions from Questlove and Qtip have been rumored and tweeted.

    The female vocals sound like Angie Stone to me. I guess that would make since if they were together about that time. NICE FIND
