Solange Knowles just announced a new album—and we're already dancing
Solange fans rejoice! The singer/visual artist just announced that she’ll be releasing brand new music this fall. She announced the big news in an interview with The New York Times Style Magazine published today, October 15th.
While little is still known about the upcoming record (the name, collaborators, and exact release date are still TBD), Solange told the mag that, “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.” We also know that she recorded the songs between California, New Orleans, and Jamaica.
This will be the singer’s fifth full album, and the follow-up to 2016’s critically-acclaimed A Seat At The Table, which earned her a Grammy for “Cranes In The Sky.”
And is if this wasn’t impressive enough, Solange was named Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year this year. The honor is selected by students and faculty, and past recipients include Viola Davis and John Legend.
While we wish we knew more about Solange’s upcoming album, we do know that we’re counting the days until it gets here.
