D’Angelo Enlists DJ Premier, Incognito, Erick Sermon & More For ‘Brown Sugar’ Reissue

After waiting nearly 14 years for a new release, it's safe to say that D'Angelo fans have a lot of patience. And who could blame us when the result is a collection of songs as sublime as 2014's Black Messiah? Now, less than three years later, the elusive artist is prepping a new release again — sort of.

Twenty-two years after its initial release, D'Angelo is releasing a remastered deluxe version of his classic debut, Brown Sugar. The two-disc reissue, which drops August 25th, will feature 21 rare remixes, alternate mixes, instrumental and a cappella versions of the album's original material. Contributors include Dallas Austin, Kool G. Rap, Erick Sermon, Incognito, DJ Premier, CJ Mackintosh and Tech King.

In addition to the songs, the deluxe release will also include a 20-page booklet that includes rare photographs, lyrics and an essay by noted author and filmmaker Nelson George about the album's impact. On working with D'Angelo on the original album, Brown Sugar co-producer Bob Power explained, "[He] was one of those artists that came not just fully formed, but truly genre-bending; genre-creating is really more like it."

Check out the tracklist for Brown Sugar (Deluxe Edition) and be sure to add these new (to us, at least) takes on this collection of classics to your personal stash when it drops in next month.
