D'Angelo "Black Hole Sun" (Soundgarden cover) (demo)

D'Angelo 'Black Hole Sun' (Soundgarden cover) (demo)
The wait for D'Angelo to follow-up his 2000 album Voodoo continues, but while we sit tight and wait for his James River to make its long-awaited arrival, here's a demo recording that finds the soul crooner covering Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun."

It's a curious cover choice for the R&B singer, and it finds him reworking the grunge anthem as a woozy soul ballad that's scarcely recognizable as the same song until it arrives at the chorus. The recording is a little rough, but it's still encouraging news for D'Angelo fans.

Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
