That's at least what the internet has been buzzing over since this was unleashed yesterday. "1000 Deaths" is being touted as a demo from a previous album and a track from a promised upcoming James River in the same breath. All anyone knows is that this is something we haven't heard from D'Angelo before. And it's definitely grimy and not something that can be easily spoonfed to the masses. Which happens to be just how we like it. Those of you not into any type of fusion when it comes to your music may not be feeling this one, but with artists such as Bilal promising more of the same, this may be what the future in Soul music is shaping up to be. I'll take my music more uncategorizable. Thanks, D'Angelo.
