Solange released her 2016 album A Seat at the Table to critical and commercial success. Two years later, she is ready to share the follow-up.

In a new profile for The New York TimesT Magazine, the Grammy-winning singer opens up about her upcoming album, whose release is “imminent this fall.”

She recorded the jazz-inspired project at various locations including New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon. “There is a lot of jazz at the core,” she reveals. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”

The album is “close to being finished,” but she is still editing up until the very end. “I like to be able to tell the story in 13 different ways, then I like to edit,” she says of the process.

The magazine describes the album as “warm, fluid, and more sensual than her last one.” However, she is still nervous to release it. “I have this fear living in my body about releasing work,” she says. “I don’t know any artist that doesn’t feel that before they hit the send button.”

A Seat at the Table became Solange’s first album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It earned widespread critical acclaim and a Grammy for Best R&B Performance for “Cranes in the Sky.”
