Earlier this week, it was reported that Solange had sent 86 of her fans who signed up for her new website copies of a mysterious book titled A Seat At The Table featuring poetry written by Solange. What was most curious is the date that's marked at the back of the book: 9-30-2016. Fans speculated that it was likely that it pointed to a new album from the artist, and today, those suspicious have been confirmed.
A Seat At The Table, which will feature the likes of Lil Wayne, Sampha, Kelela, Q-Tip, and more, will be released this Friday. According to a press release, Solange had been writing and producing the album since 2013. A Seat At The Table, which follows 2012's True EP, is "a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing."
Those who didn't get a copy of the book can download a digital version of A Seat At The Table here. The album will be availabe on September 30. Take a look at its tracklist and album art below.
