Solange’s return to music is coming sooner than you think. In a recent interview with The New York Times, the singer-songwriter updated fans about her next studio album and shared what sounds we can expect to hear from her.
According to Solange, the album will arrive sometime this fall, although she wasn’t willing to give the project a concrete due date. “[It will] likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment,” she told the Times.
As for Solo’s creative process, the singer reportedly recorded the album in a handful of different locations, including New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon. And its sound may be just as diverse as the places she recorded in. “There is a lot of jazz at the core,” she continued. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”
The untiled LP will serve as a follow up to Solange’s successful 2016 project, A Seat at the Table. The album received critical acclaim and peaked at number one on the Billboard 200. It also earned her a Grammy for Best R&B Performance for her single “Cranes in the Sky.”
In other news, Solange was named the Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year in Feb. 2018. She’s also unveiled numerous performance art pieces at various museums and exhibits.
