Solange has announced the she will be releasing a new album. There is no official release date, but in a recent interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Solange revealed that the album would drop at an unexpected moment some time this fall. This will be the R&B/Soul singer and songwriter’s fourth studio album.
After the success of her 2016 album, ‘A Seat At The Table,’ Solange’s follow up LP is highly anticipated. The album was nominated for various awards, and “Cranes in the Sky,” one of the most popular singles from the album, received a Grammy for Best R&B Performance. Solange’s fans are anxious to see what the artist has been working on in her two-year hiatus from music.
Although she has not released any new music, Solange has been keeping busy with various other creative pursuits. She was named the 2018 Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year. In April, she unveiled Metatronia, a performance of dance and sculpture for the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Her exploration into other outlets of creativity caused a change in the direction for her new album. She disclosed to T, “I realize how much wider, figuratively and literally, my work could be if I took myself away as subject.”
Surely, Solange will not disappoint on her next project. She has travelled from New Orleans, to California’s Topanga Canyon, and even to Jamaica to record material for the album. In her interview with T, she stated: “There is a lot of jazz at the core, but with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.” Solange also revealed that she has been working with The Internet’s Steve Lacy on content for the LP. We are excited to see how the artist’s experiences over the span of these past two years will affect the perspective in her upcoming project.
