The 12 tracks, which he recorded with his band The Vanguard, include the lead single “Really Love” and funky “Sugah Daddy,” which dropped earlier today.

D’Angelo addressed the controversial album title. “It’s about people rising up in Ferguson and in Egypt and in Occupy Wall Street and in every place where a community has had enough and decided to make change happen,” he said in a statement. “Not every song on this album is politically charged, but calling this album Black Messiah creates a landscape where those songs can live to the fullest.”

Upon its release, the album became a trending topic as fans welcomed D’Angelo back. “It’s a passion project, and it’s everything,” said The Roots’ Questlove, who played on the album. “I really don’t want to give a hyperbolic, grandiose statement, but it’s everything.”
