Solange Knowles Releases Extended Director’s Cut of Interdisciplinary Performance Art Film for Album When I Get Home Available on Digital Platforms
NEW YORK, December 12, 2019, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and visual artist Solange Knowles released the extended director’s cut of the interdisciplinary performance art film for her album When I Get Home via Saint Records / Columbia across digital platforms. Solange first premiered a version of the extended cut at museums and contemporary institutions across the globe including The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Los Angeles, The Brooklyn Museum, New York City, V&A London, and more. The latest iteration of the film includes new scenes as well as a new track called, “Dreams (Demo/2).” In celebration of the film’s release, Solange will appear on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah tonight at 11:00 PM ET on Comedy Central.
The film is an exploration of origin, asking the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution. The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this. It was directed and edited by Solange. Contributing directors include Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori. Additional work courtesy of Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt.
Solange initially released her album and film entitled When I Get Home in March. Written, performed, and executive produced by Solange, the release resulted in her third top 10 debut on the Billboard 200, hit #1 on iTunes, and kicked off a global tour. The album was lauded as the best album of the year by LA Times and included in the top albums of 2019 by Time, Pitchfork, Complex, Vulture, The Guardian, NPR, Billboard, Rolling Stone, and many more.
