D'Angelo stunned on Sunday night when he surprise-released Black Messiah, his third album, and his first since 2000's landmark LP Voodoo. The 12-track effort is available on iTunes and it's streaming on the Spotify player below:

According to Pitchfork:

It revealed that Q-Tip and Kendra Foster (Funkadelic) contributed lyrics [to Black Messiah], while ?uestlove, bassist Pino Palladino, and drummer James Gadson play on it.

Check out the tracklist below, and a note explaining the album's title, taken from the lyrics pamphlet handing out at the Red Bull Music Academy-sponsored Black Messiah listening party in New York.
