Solange will be releasing a new album this year as a follow up to the epic A Seat at the Table, one of my favorite albums in recent years.

She spoke with New York Times about what went into the process, including where she recorded (New Orleans, Jamaica, Topanga Canyon and Houston) and what she’s shooting for with the new sounds.

“There is a lot of jazz at the core,” she emailed me a few days after our meeting. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”

She also went on to say…

“I like to be able to tell the story in 13 different ways, then I like to edit.”

“I have this fear living in my body about releasing work. I don’t know any artist that doesn’t feel that before they hit the send button.”

Can’t wait to see what starts coming out from her. Head over to NY Times for the full interview.
