Mark Metcalfe/Getty ImagesThe enigma that is D’Angelo is lifting the curtain a little bit in a forthcoming documentary, Devil’s Pie.
Monday, fans were treated to an official trailer of the Carine Biljsma-directed film after it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend. The doc is set to explore the tumultuous and triumphant career of the neo-soul icon, as told from the perspective of his close friends and collaborators, such as Questlove.
It also chronicles D’Angelo’s return to music with 2014’s Black Messiah, and features footage from the rehearsals for his Second Coming tour in 2015.
“Who leaves the scene for 14 years and comes back?” a voice asks at the trailer’s beginning, a reference to the R&B crooner’s hiatus from music after the release of his sophomore album Voodoo in 2000.
Devil’s Pie: D’Angelo will also delve deeper into that period, during which D’Angelo struggled with addiction, deaths in his family and a serious car accident.
In other D’Angelo-related news, the “How Does It Feel” singer is gearing up for a new album, after dropping off the single “Unshaken” as part of the Red Dead Redemption II soundtrack.
