The multi-talented D’Angelo is back with a brand new single in five years called “Unshaken”. If you’ve played the video game Red Dead Redemption 2 (which I haven’t), this song was featured in it. D’Angelo is a big fan of the game so it was only right to contribute to the video game. Check out what the Director of Music and Audio at Rockstar Games, Ivan Pavlovich had to say to Rolling Stone about D’Angelo’s contribution.
D’Angelo reached out to Pavlovich through an unnamed intermediary. “He would come in here [Rockstar’s New York city office] and just play the game. We weren’t even talking about doing music,” Pavlovich says. “When D’Angelo comes through, he shows up at midnight, and he’s playing the game until four in the morning. Each time he was just like, ‘it’s incredible.’ It just blows his mind. He’s such a fan. I have never seen someone that excited.”
