As hiatuses go it’s impressive, but after 12 years D’Angelo looks to be breaking his silence. With YouTube videos of new tracks circulating, fans are hearing their first new material since 2000.

Today Last.fm Trends looks at D’Angelo’s scrobbles on Last.fm, and what 2012 may bring.

The graph above (click to enlarge) shows his weekly scrobbles for the past year. So far there isn’t a comprehensive trend to be found in his weekly scrobbles, but it may take a little more than YouTube videos to get fans really excited again.

So far, D’Angelo has 3,701,176 plays from 350,976 listeners on Last.fm. Tagged with neo-soul, he’s currently somewhere between Raphael Saadiq‘s 252,010 listeners and Maxwell‘s 351,192 listeners as regards his genre peers. With the former having released his debut two years after we last heard from D’Angelo, it’s clear there’s a lot of catching up to do – and the space for scrobbles to rocket.

Learn more about D’Angelo at his Last.fm page. Meanwhile, Last.fm Trends brings you the news in scrobbles every weekday.
