D’Angelo has performed the song, titled “Sugah Daddy,” at shows before, including at a 2012 performance caught on tape. But this marks the track’s official release. “Sugah Daddy,” which features D’Angelo’s new band the Vanguard, is the first track off the upcoming Black Messiah.
According to Pitchfork, D’Angelo will debut Black Messiah Sunday at a New York listening session hosted by writer Nelson George. In the meantime, listen to “Sugah Daddy” at the Red Bull Music Academy website, where the company is releasing 20 exclusive tracks from different musicians before the year’s end.
