Solange Starts Work On New Album

Published: Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 by Trent

Solange Knowles has started working on her next studio album. The singer has headed to Australia to team up with the alternative rock band Midnight Juggernauts and is reportedly planning to release the LP independently. No indication of when the album will hit stores has been confirmed. {Source}

Solange has been a mainstay on BET Centric for the since 2008 without showing any signs of slowing down. Her music has really gathered a strong following in the Neo-Soul and traditional R&B circles so I expect that this news will excite many of her fans. However, she will have to work twice as hard to get public attention without label support. Even with her father’s assistance, an artist without a label always has to fight an uphill battle if they hope to be commercially viable. Let’s see if she could pull it off.

    Her ‘career” as a token club DJ has more potential than her ‘singing’ career ever will.

    i was never sure of her early stuff but she’s getting really interesting with all these risks she’s taking. midnight juggernauts are amazing. this is quite amazing news that she’s hooked up with those guys. go solange!

    sorry to say it but as long as beyonce’s her sister she will always flop and another thing is that she tries so hard to be different from bey that I think she loses herself in the process.

    Y’all are stupid. If you are the least bit familiar with Solange and her music, you know she’s not about being a commercial artist. She makes music that she loves and could care less bout selling records. I’ve seen her in concert twice and she is the truth. She’s been working on this album even before B announced her break. Get yo facts up!!

    this is why i really like solange. she’s an artist. it’s not about trying to shift units. her making something with midnight juggernauts is a really smart move. both are interesting acts which want to take risks. midnight juggernauts make amazing tunes. can’t wait to hear it.

    Solange doesn’t want to be “commercial”. That’s the reason she left Interscope. This new project will not be your typical R&B album.

  10. trucie January 12, 2010

    If she is, she has six months to put it out and capitalize on it now that her sister has so graciously decided to step out of the spotlight for a half minute.

    I really like Solange. Her last album is still in rotation with me! I will be excited for her next adventure:)

    I loved Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams and wish her all the success with her new album.

  13. Prince248 January 12, 2010

    Solange’s last album was great, and anyone leaving comments that did not even listen to it should really grow up and download ‘God Given Name’ by Solange, then I’m sure you’ll sit down.
    I will be one of her supporters who buys her next album, I can’t wait.

  14. January 12, 2010

    pleasantly surprised by her last record; “cosmic journey” is still in heavy rotation.

    i’m looking forward to seeing what direction she goes in

    JOSHZILLA, RED LIGHTS & PRINCE248 Y’ALL BETTA SPEAK ON IT. The rest of y’all fairy queens need to sit, half of y’all haven’t even heard her material, but y’all willing to stalk s***. She’s an ARTIST that takes her MUSIC seriously, she’s STATED she’s not trying to be commercial, so sit. An artist’s talent/greatness is not measured by the number they push, but yet the quality of her material. She will never be a Beyonce, she, it, or them; that’s y she is SOLANGE, end. Can’t wait for her album to drop & For me to hear/purchase the new single.

    now this is an artist, my brother was listening to her album the other day and I fell in love, she is very original

    (Edit) “talk s***”

    the truth is that solange plus midnight juggernauts is one of the coolest collabs i’ve heard of. both are great, and just makes me think how excited i am by solanges next moves. f** the people wanting her to put out commercial s***. how uninspiring it is that people just want her to put out mainstream music. solange is on the money.

    I fux wit Solange. Real talk I think she’s better than her sister. Her last album was the truth. God Given Name was one of my faves on that album. I’ll be lookin forward 2 hearin some of her new music.

  22. Dilla January 12, 2010

    I actually adore Solange presentational and vocal distinction from the current trend of status quo.

  23. darreon July 22, 2010

    Solange is really talented . but i do agree with sum ppl tht say as long as beyonce is her ister she will never b good enough ….. but in my opinion her last album was one of the best tht year . !!!!! solange doesnt give a f** bout making money . if she did she would be signed to a label right now . she’s doiin what she loves & she’s good at it . i mean she wrote alot of songs for beyonce & destiny child . i mean her lyrics r so motivational & real . solange & beyonce might lookk alike . but they are completely different musically . beyonce is the sor of american girl who everyone loves . she’s the it girl witht the more danceable beatz although she does have her soul songs. then we have solange who makes real soul/r&b songs . i dnt think ihtz fair to compare them 2 1 another when their nothing alike. they’re both talented & as long as both of them r makin music im gonna keep supporting & buying both of their music . !
