Solange Knowles is once again coming up with a new album titled “A Seat At The Table” after her last release “Truth” in 2012. The album will release on September 30 and will be a follow-up to her 2008 project “Sol-Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams.”
Knowles took to Instagram to announce the release of her fourth studio album.
“My Album, A Seat At The Table, will be released digitally this Friday, September 30th,” she wrote on Instagram. “I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement to share this body of work I have written, with you.”
Since Knowles mentioned that the music will be dropped digitally, it can be expected to release on streaming platforms Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL, Urban Islands reported. The songstress also unveiled the track list for the album, which revealed guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Q-Tip, and BJ The Chicago Kid.
According to a report by Vulture, “A Seat At The Table” is being pitched as Knowles’ most personal work to date. In June, the singer said the album is “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief, and healing.”
Solange Knowles, sister of Beyonce Knowles, will be releasing a 12-page digital book that will offer a quick read for fans. It is not the first time the singer has made fans wait for her albums. Her first and second albums were also released years apart. The “Sol- Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams” released five years after “Solo Star,” which was dropped in 2003.
On her birthday, June 24, 2016, Knowles announced that she has finally completed the album. She revealed that she began “writing most proud of body of work” when she was 27 and finished recording it “72 hours before turning 30.”
“I say all of that to say…don’t eveeer let anyone write your story for you,” Solange Knowles wrote as quoted by the Heavy.com. “They can talk, they can doubt, and they can say what they wanna, but only you have the words to narrate this ting we call life. So much gratitude for all of your wishes. So much gratitude for love. So much gratitude for freedom. So much gratitude for life.”
