    R&B singer D'Angelo continues to work on his first new album in more than a decade. It's taking D'A a long ass time to finish work on this much delayed sophomore effort. We wonder if people still care.

    "He wants to finish it as soon as possible," producer Russell Elevado told MTV Hive. "But once he gets into the studio he gets into his own zone and he's on D'Angelo time and nothing else really matters... All together, there's over 50 songs that he's cut since we started. I think he wants to put 12 songs on the album."

    Yeah, well, D'Angelo time is not the pop music's time. Fans are fickle and the move on, so hurry the hell up, D'A.

    Elevado also confirms that rapper Q-Tip and Fred Wesley of The J.B.'s collaborated on certain tracks. D'Angelo has debuted several new songs during his current European tour. Elevado also further hyped the record, saying, "There's nothing that sounds like this album at all. It's on a different level."

    Time's a'ticking.

    Do you want a new album from D'Angelo? Or do you just not care?
