Solange Announces New Album ‘A Seat at the Table’

Solange is inviting you to take A Seat at the Table.

The R&B songstress will release her new album to digital retailers worldwide 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 full-length album since 2008’s Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams. In 2012, she also unleashed her 7-track EP True.
