D’Angelo Covers Al Green’s ‘I’m Glad You’re Mine’ on New Live Album
We’re still waiting on D’Angelo to follow up his 2000 album ‘Voodoo’ but until then, the singer prepares to release ‘Live at the Jazz Café, London: The Complete Show’ on March 25. One song featured on the live set is D’Angelo’s rendition of Al Green‘s ‘I’m Glad You’re Mine.’
The song was originally performed on Sept. 14, 1995, at the Jazz Café in London. The live album was only released in Japan and five of the tracks (including ‘I’m Glad You’re Mine’) were added for the new re-release.
The singer explains his musical influences in the album’s liner notes per Billboard. “My root is gospel, and I grew up listening to Prince and hip-hop on the radio,” he says. “Jazz came much later. I am like a music historian, and just listen to old music whenever I have time, like vintage jazz. I think that’s where my jazziness is coming from. I love jazz.”
