D’Angelo and The Vanguard: Sugah Daddy

Last night, while scrolling through my Twitter feed, I was attracted to the news that Red Bull were going to be releasing a free download of D'Angelo's new single the following evening for their new campaign #20Before15. I immediately clicked retweet and signed up for the mailing list to be one of thousands to hear the new tune. Now, you can too. Click through for an exclusive listen of D'Angelo's new single.

I can’t even begin to describe how incredible it was to see D’Angelo at his only Australian side-show for SoulFest just over a month ago in Melbourne, and today, I’m reminded of those same funky and soulful vibes that he brought to the small, intimate venue that particular evening. Although he no longer has that sexy physique every single Lady was swooning for back in the day, he still has an amazing voice that gives you goosebumps and provides all the feelings.

Red Bull Music recently launched a new campaign: “20 Before 15”. What exactly is it?

In their words, “2014 was a year of many magical moments. To celebrate, we asked some of the artists we had the honour to work with to share some amazing music to take you into 2015. 20 days, 20 exclusive tracks.”

D'Angelo and The Vanguard - Sugah Daddy

And TODAY, it’s pretty exciting that Red Bull have shared an exclusive track from the only and only Michael D’Angelo Archer! Woohoo!

And with this new funky tune, Red Bull have confirmed that D’Angelo’s long-awaited new record, “Black Messiah”, is definitely on its way. FINALLY.

As for the first taste? I am absolutely lovin’ every minute of it and ‘Sugah Daddy’ has been on repeat ever since I checked my inbox and received the notification that the new single had been revealed online. Embodying a brassy and funky sound, ‘Sugah Daddy’ employs D’Angelo’s trademark falsetto that we all know and love. Yes. Can’t wait to hear more!

Unfortunately, all 1000 downloads of the track are now gone, but you can stream the exclusive tune above.

Enjoy. 🙂
