After a four-year wait, a new Solange Knowles album is arriving!
The 30-year-old artist announced that her next album, titled ‘A Seat at the Table’, will drop digitally this Friday. The 20-track project, which Solange has been working on since 2013, was written entirely by her and includes features by The-Dream, Lil Wayne, Sampha, Kelly Rowland, and Q-Tip.
Knowles describes the upcoming album as “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief, and healing.” On her 30th birthday Knowles had announced on Instagram she had completed the album after three years and called it her “most proud body of work.” “I say all of that to say…don’t eveeer let anyone write your story for you,” she continued in her post. “They can talk, they can doubt, and they can say what they wanna, but only you have the words to narrate this ting we call life.”
The new album is accompanied by a book of poetry written by Solange, featuring photography and the singer's original compositions, currently available to read on her website.
