As the documentaries’s description on the Tribeca Film Festival website notes, “the film finds D’Angelo at a crossroads between a haunted past and uncertain future.”Devil’s Pie, which takes its name from the track on his acclaimed 2000 album, Voodoo, examines D’Angelo’s 14-year hiatus following that album’s release. During that time, the singer/multi-instrumentalist/bandleader withdrew from the public eye as he dealt with a myriad of personal issues ranging from a serious car accident to substance abuse struggles to the deaths of close family members.Related: D’Angelo Releases “Unshaken”, First New Music Since 2014 [Listen]The documentary, directed by Carine Bijlsma, follows D’Angelo as he makes his return in 2014 with the critically-acclaimed Black Messiah and features footage from band rehearsals for the ensuing 2015 Second Coming tour.
