Solange Announces New Album ‘A Seat At The Table’ Coming Friday!


Well how about this for a surprise!

Solange Knowles is being sneaky, but not completely, as she announced on Tuesday, the release of her brand new album A Seat At The Table, hitting digital retailers and streaming services on Friday, Sept. 30, via Saint Records/Columbia.

The 21-track project, which she began writing and producing in 2013, features appearances from Lil Wayne (“Mad”), Sampha (“Don’t Touch My Hair”), The-Dream and BJ the Chicago Kid (“F.U.B.U.”), Q-Tip (“Borderline”), Kelly Rowland (“Interlude: I Got So Much Magic, You Can Have It”), Tweet, and more.

Earlier this week, the Michael Kors spokeswoman sent 86 lucky fans, who signed up for her new website, a poetry book of lyrics and photos, leading to speculation about a new album. A digital version of the book is also available for download.

A Seat at the Table, described as “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief, and healing,” marks Solange’s first body of work since 2012’s acclaimed EP True.

The R&B songstress stars as the leading lady in The Walk, the brand’s first-ever street-style campaign, which was shot by photographer Tommy Ton.

The images, snapped in Manhattan’s West Village and Greenwich Village, are accompanied by a stunning 43-second long Wednesday Agency-directed visual.

In the pics, Solange rocks a faux fur green jacket over a matching neck tie blouse paired with black leather pants and white kicks. The video shows her in a knee-high dress, shades, and sneakers. Confident as ever, Solange appears throughout the clip, exploring New York through her own love of photography.

“Solange is strong and passionate and not afraid to share her opinion with the world — and that type of confidence always makes an impact,” Kors told Billboard. “She’s a true trendsetter. I love how she takes some of our pieces and makes them her own.”

Fans who want to join the campaign can share images using the #SidewalkSpotted hashtag for a chance to be featured on The Walk.
