Solange’s music video director husband Alan Ferguson directed both videos, which are similarly striking and meticulously choreographed in gorgeously shot locales. Solange’s Saint Heron site said Ferguson has an “unrivaled reputation for aesthetically pleasing imagery.” Producer/singer Sampha also makes a cameo in the “Don’t Touch My Hair” video.
Solange called A Seat at the Table “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing” in a statement. The album features guests like Lil Wayne, The-Dream, Q-Tip, Kelela and Kelly Rowland, while collaborators include co-producer Raphael Saadiq, Majical Cloudz, Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, TV on the Radio’s Dave Andrew Sitek and more.
Following its digital-only release Friday, A Seat at the Table is now available to preorder on CD (due out November 18th) and double vinyl (December 9th).
Solange Knowles has announced her highly anticipated third album A Seat at the Table.
