I wouldn't expect an album from him anytime soon.

On The Lookout 4:
some new music. WTF is going on this year?

It's all gone very quiet considering Questlove saying that the album was all but done. D'Angelo has had a bout of illness too. 2014?? who knows.

I mean, with Pino touring with NIN right now, it's very unlikely that anything will happen in November. Iunno, the first leg of the NIN tour is over at the end of the month, so maybe something will happen in the interim .

Or maybe we won't get an album until 2015. Any real momentum was lost after he cancelled all of those shows. A bit too much silence around a 99.9999999% done album, but the only news we hear on it is, "It's almost done".

He is probably crippled by heroin addiction.

This is the most likely explanation for the never ending mess of the past decade.

>Any news on his progress???

Russell Elevado (who every single genuine D'Angelo fan must know) tweeted this to ?uestlove yesterday:

"@questlove spring or summer 2014. We're gonna change the game again!"

and then he answered this someone asking who's on drums on the album:

"@Chrisdaddydave is on 1 track, james gadson's on 2 tracks and questlove is on the rest."

(Russ has only 1000 followers and has only been tweeting 70 times in...4 years!!!)

Little tidbits here and there? At this point?

Either the album is going to be released or its not. Its 2014 and without a confirmed release date or a new single this is just talk with nothing solid to back it up.

191032, not really anything...

I mean c'mon son!!!

Release a single, then a video and then the album. Until then, there's no point in saying that something is coming soon. Look, the'Really Love' snippet is seven years old now and we still don't even have a real single from that. For all its worth, there won't be any new music from him, period.
