Solange Knowles Announces New Album: ‘A Seat at the Table’
She provided the clues. Now, here's the truth: Solange Knowles is indeed releasing an album, called A Seat at the Table, and it's arriving in just three days via Saint Heron / Columbia Records (September 30).
Solange calls the album, which she's worked on writing and producing since 2013, "a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing," and includes contributions from Tweet, Sampha, Dev Hynes, Q-Tip, Kelly Rowland, Nia Andrews, Kelela and Lil Wayne.
Rumors swirled of Solange's return to music after she announced across social media that she was inviting 86 fans to her "table," eventually sending all of the lucky 86 fans a book filled with poetry and photographs. You can now see the book in digital form on her website.
The album will be her first collection of new music since 2012's TRUE.
