Solange is releasing her third studio album this Friday.
Yesterday, Solange announced via Facebook that her third studio album, 'A Seat At The Table' will release this Friday, September 30th. The album will feature guest collaborators Tweet, Lil Wayne, Q-Tip, Kelela, Nia Andrews and Sean Nicholas Cage. The project features 21-original tracks.
In 2012, Solange release her last LP, 'True' but has been relatively quiet since. If you follow her on Instagram or Snapchat, you've most likely seen her teasers in the studio and heard a few small snippets. Although four years since the release of her last project, in 2013 she released her compilation album Saint Heron, which would ultimately spark the now popular online media outlet of the same name. Solange has become known for using her voice and online platform to speak out about inequality and racial injustices. She sometimes even shares personal experiences, like the one we wrote about here. If 'A Seat At The Table' is anything like the content she's produced on her site Saint Heron over the last couple of years, it's definitely something we should all be excited for.
While there's not much more info available, we'll all have to wait until Friday to hear the new project. Check out the track listing below and visit Solange's website to check out her new digital book here.
