A week ago, Solange Knowles dropped her latest album, A Seat at the Table. Along with the release of her album, Solange also released a digital book, which her fans could read for free. Now she has released a mini-documentary about her creative process behind the album.
The mini-documentary shows Solange recording in her homes, both in Long Island or New Orleans, and how she essentially set up a studio in her living room. The documentary also shows her and her fellow producers composing parts of the songs on the album.
Solange released the documentary with the following statement on Facebook:
“I’m really excited to share with you a little film that documents the early stages of my songwriting, jam sessions, and collaborations of #aseatatthetable … 3 years ago, I moved into a small house in the middle sugar cane field in New Iberia, La with just my engineers @mixedbyblue and @audio_nino to finish all of the lyrics as well as structure and produce the jam sessions that have now become the songs on the album. See the video in full which also follows me to Long Island, and New Orleans where I worked with an array of incredible collaborators on the project.”
