After just one interview in the U.S. over the summer, seems like D’Angelo headed over to the U.K. to start plotting his come back. This track from Mark Ronson’s forthcoming album “Record Collection” leaked in London and online a couple of months ago, but somehow didn’t register a bleep on U.S. radars.
The lyrics sound like they could be about a breakup:
I look up on this mountain and marvel it seems so tall
so tragically its fragile I’m waiting for it to fall
enormous mass it’s made of glass instead of with a substance that’s stronger
you thought that it would hold me I can’t take it any longer
I’m gonna break out, i’m gonna break out
I’m gonna take all of my love back on the way out
We think he’s talking about his breakup with the pipe.
