D’Angelo made a triumphant return to the US stage earlier this month with a surprise set during Roots drummer Questlove‘s Superjam, and the fine folks at Bonnaroo have released a short video giving fans a peek at the preparation process and rehearsal sessions that went into making the historic show a reality.

D’Angelo’s comeback is in full effect, as the rejuvenated soul crooner is set to perform at this year’s Essence Music Festival in New Orleans and will be appearing on this weekend’s BET Awards live airing.

Will we ever get that storied James River album, or will it turn out to be the soul version of Detox? Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
