Solange - A Seat at the Table

    Solange is taking a page from her big sis with the surprise release of a new album. A Seat at the Table will arrive in just three days time, September 30th, through the musician’s own Saint Records.

    The album spans an impressive 21 tracks and features contributions from Lil Wayne, Q-Tip, Dev Hynes, Sampha, Kelela, The-Dream, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Moses Sumney, among others.

    In the works since 2013, Solange describes A Seat at the Table as “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing.” She preceded its release by mailing 86 fans a poetry book of lyrics and photos. A digital version of the book can be found here.


    A Seat at the Table follows 2012’s True EP and 2013’s compilation Saint Heron.
