Solange Just Dropped Her New Album ‘When I Get Home’, And You Can Listen To It Right Now

Solange has been teasing something over the past few days — and now, When I Get home, her fourth album, is here.
The nineteen-track album is the first music we’ve heard from Solange since her last album, 2016’s A Seat At The Table. It was first teased in a T Magazine profile last October, which made it sound like Solange would drop it imminently, which, obviously, did not happen. According to that feature, it was recorded in New Orleans, Jamaica, California’s Topanga Canyon and Houston, her hometown.
In that feature, Solange described When I Get Home as “jazz at the core, but with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”
Since then, Solange has been quiet — until this week, when she took over turn-of-the-century black social media site Black Planet with a series of gifs, photos and lyrics, all loosely tied to Houston, her home. Yesterday, she released the track-list.
Playboi Carti, Devin The Dude, Gucci Mane, Tyler, The Creator, Dev Hynes, Cassie, Pharrell, Sampha and Panda Bear all contributed to the album.
