What a year 2018 has been for music, now we get the great news that Solange is prepping to release her follow-up to her stellar A Seat At The Table LP. In an interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine, the singer said that the release of the album is “imminent this fall, probably sometime soon.”

T’s 2018 Greats Issue celebrates six people who have inspired us to forge a different world of our own: #Solange, #AlessandroMichele, #GeorgeRRMartin, #CarrieMaeWeems, #ViggoMortensen and #BruceNauman. Each of them has created something singular, be it a performance or an aesthetic, and they have all, in some way, helped steer the cultural discourse. “Where would black artists, female artists, American artists, photographers, be without Carrie Mae Weems, whose groundbreaking photographic ‘Kitchen Table Series’ (1989-90) quite literally foregrounded the black female face?” writes writes T’s editor in chief @HanyaYanagihara. “Where would science-fiction writers, fantasy writers, historical writers and television itself be without George R. R. Martin, whose ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ books became the most sensational television series of all time, and also redefined the state of contemporary fandom?” Click the link in our bio to go inside #TGreatsIssue, out on newsstands inside the @nytimes October 21. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Solange Knowles (@saintrecords) written by Ayana Mathis, photographed by Collier Schorr (collierschorrstudio), styled by Carlos Nazario (@mr_carlos_nazario); Alessandro Michele (@lallo25) written by Frank Bruni, photographed by Michal Chelbin (@michal_chelbin), fashion styled by @JayMassacret; @GeorgeRRMartin written by Charles Yu, photographed by Alessandra Sanguinetti / Magnum Photos (@alessandra_sanguinetti); @CarrieMaeWeems written by Megan O’Grady (@meganeogrady), photographed by @MickaleneThomas, styled by Shiona Turini (@shionat); Viggo Mortensen written by Thessaly La Force (@thessaly), photographed by Jackie Nickerson @(jackie_nickerson), styled by @JasonRider; Bruce Nauman written by Nikil Saval, photographed by Alec Soth / Magnum Photos (@littlebrownmushroom).
Solange spoke further on the forthcoming project, saying:
“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.”
She also described the album as “warm” and “fluid and more sensual” than A Seat At The Table.
“I realize how much wider, figuratively and literally, my work could be if I took myself away as subject,” she said.
While speaking with Billboard the singer hinted that a new project was on the way and talked about working with the Internet‘s Steve Lacy.
“He’s like, ‘OK, I got these chords.’ ‘Hey, papa, let’s go!’” Solange said of jamming with Lacy. In that same interview, she also said she’s “not interested in entertainment” at the moment. “That might change. There might be a moment where I decide, ‘Hey, I love the game,’” she said. “For right now, I’m not [there].”
Thank goodness the soul singer has had a change of heart. Recently, the “Cranes in the Sky” artist sat down with Earl Sweatshirt to discuss singer Ariana Grande, wigs, Mudras, and their mutual affection for Philly rapper Tierra Whack.
