Once-(self-)exiled R&B singer D’Angelo (born Michael Archer) is hitting the road with his backing band The Vanguard in support of his late 2014 release, Black Messiahthe singer announced the U.S. run of his Second Coming tour Monday. (Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but the coincidence of there being 14 years between Messiah and its predecessor and the plan to play 14 dates this summer begs a mention.) He’ll kick off June 7 in Oakland, California and weave around the country the rest of the month, stopping at The Farm to play a late-night Bonnaroo set before end the run June 28 in Sayreville, New Jersey.

Whether this means he’s back for good or just back for now, consider how his longtime collaborator ?uestlove introduced the album to the public last December: “I don’t really want to give a hyperbolic or grandiose statement, but it’s everything. It’s beautiful, it’s ugly, it’s truth, it’s lies. It’s everything.”

Tickets go on sale May 1 at 10 a.m. local time; visit the artist’s website for purchasing information.
