Solange dropped something extra special for all the soul seekers out there earlier this year with her critically-acclaimed visual album When I Get Home. To extend the harmonious moment and continue the vibes altogether, the youngest Knowles sister will be screening a “director’s cut” version of the short film at various art museums and theaters across the U.S. & Europe starting this week.

The extended version of When I Get Home is set to include new scenes and musical arrangements that will boost the film’s runtime to 41 minutes compared to the original 33-minute length.
Here’s what Solange had to say about this special release in an official statement:
“When I was younger I would fear what the people called the Holy Spirit and what it would do to the men and women around me. I never wanted it to catch me, and was terrified on how it might transform me if it did! Much of this film is a surrendering to that fear. After a really tough health year and the loss of the body that I once knew, the film is an invitation for that same spirit to manifest through me and the work I want to continue to create.”
