While recording the album, Knowles released an EP, titled True (2012) and launched her own record label named Saint Records. Writing for the album began as early as 2008, while the recording sessions took place from 2013 to June 2016.
A Seat at the Table is Solange’s third studio album, released September 30, 2016 through her own label Saint Records and Columbia Records. She announced the album’s release just three days before its due date. In a statement, Solange described the album as a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing. She has reportedly been working on the project since 2013.
Complete your Solange collection. The vinyl is really quiet, but I wish more care would've been taken with the mastering, especially when it comes to Solange's vocals. If the sound they were going for was mid-range, pre-'80s production, they got it (and that's totally okay, punk vinyl records have that sound, and it's perfect for their stuff).
Solange Knowles turned 30 in June, and it seems clear that her Saturn Returns manifested in an artistic surge.

A Seat at the Table is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Solange, released on September 30, 2016 by Saint Records and Columbia Records. The album features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Sampha, The-Dream, BJ the Chicago Kid, Q-Tip, Kelly Rowland and Kelela, among others.
A Seat at the Table can be a bit monotone. Solange’s True EP had a wide assortment of sounds and a greater sense of color that this album’s dour chords and redolent horns can’t quite match. That said, ultimately there’s something refreshing about Solange’s dreary, almost funereal compositions. Earlier in her career, Solange defined herself by what she was not.
To offer someone a seat at a table is to include them; to make their thoughts, feelings, and opinions valid. For Black Americans, struggling through an election filled with racist rhetoric and a news cycle dominated by the killing of unarmed Black men and women, it often feels as if we'll never be offered a seat without conditions.
The album by Solange A Seat At The Table will be released globally on September 30th, 2016 via Saint Records, Columbia. A Seat At The Table was written and produced by Solange and has been a work in progress since 2013, the year after the release of her seven song EP, True. Solange describes A Seat At The Table as a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing.
