Unshaken | D'Angelo



It’s been a while since I can say I’ve heard new D’Angelo music. He hasn’t been absent though because his last album, Black Messiah, was released in 2014 and actually won a Grammy in 2016. I recall that album coming out but I had been so far removed from D’Angelo that I don't think I heard any of it. This new release came on the first Friday of the New Year and is for the video game Red Dead Redemption 2, which I know nothing about. After reading a brief description on the game, the song seems to fit appropriately for it. It also sounds like pretty true and classic D’Angelo, which is always refreshing when dealing with an artist that’s been in the game for a few decades. The production on the song is very captivating and coupled with D’Angelo’s voice, it makes for a good song. Not necessarily anything I’ll run back to or add to my faves, but I wouldn’t be mad hearing it again.
