Solange in Director’s Chair for New Video

Solange made her directorial debut on July 15th when she shot the video for “Sandcastle Disco,” the second single off her sophomore album, SoL-AngeL & The Hadley St. Dreams.

The 22-year-old wrote the treatment for “Sandcastle Disco,” just as she did for her first single, “I Decided.” The video is a journey into a cutting-edge, inventive, fantasy land of abstract visuals that come together to make a video that is a rollercoaster ride for the viewer that only gets better just when he/she thinks it’s over.

“It’s a living pop-up book, each page folding over and zooming into the next. The colors are vivid. I used many references from the movie Across the Universe that are links in the treatment and also the [Hewlett-Packard] commercials we’ve seen running with Jay-Z and Serena Williams,” states Solange.

Find out what you can expect when SoL-AngeL & The Hadley St. Dreams arrives in stores and online on August 26th.
