D’Angelo’s classic debut album Brown Sugar is being remastered and expanded for a brand-new deluxe edition collection for release this August.
21 rare tracks, including remixes, instrumentals and a cappella versions, will be featured on the 2 CD set and the digital version of the package.
Physical copies will also include a 20-page booklet featuring an essay by author Nelson George, lyrics for the album’s ten original tracks and rare photos.
Brown Sugar, which was released in 1995, is considered to be the first “neo-soul” album. It earned D’Angelo four Grammy nominations, including one for Best R&B Album.
