New Music: D'Angelo - 'Black Hole Sun'
But there's rumblings in the jungle that D is on the way back. A series of live shows in Europe are on the cards, as is an album (stop laughing, it's looking more likely than ever according to Questlove).
On top of that, a few sneaky covers are starting to leak. Covers? Of who? Soundgarden. Who else? 'Black Hole Sun' to be precise. Didn't see that coming did you?
To be fair, it doesn't really sound a great deal like the Black Hole Sun you're familiar with, with D putting his distinct spin on it. You can check it out below.
