“There is a lot of jazz at the core,” Solange told journalist Ayana Mathis. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”
The 32-year-old often references hip-hop and heavy bass as an ode to her birthplace, Houston’s Third Ward of Houston.
The “Don’t Touch My Hair” singer began working on the album last year and recording music in New Orleans, Topanga Canyon and Jamaica.
Solange did not provide a title or release date for the upcoming release. In comparison to A Seat at the Table, which she acknowledges as her “punk album,” the Columbia Records signee described the unnamed album as “warm,” “fluid,” and “more sensual.
“The record will likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment, like a meteor cratering into the culture. But she will not be rushed,” Mathis wrote.
