Solange Covers Garage Magazine / Reflects On New Album & More

Published: Friday 8th Nov 2019 by Sam

Cop a gander of Solange!

The eclectic songstress covers the latest issue of Garage Magazine and, as ever, makes for a striking figure.

Solo posed alongside New York-based multimedia artist Jacolby Satterwhite, who designed a digital digital art installation that’s woven into the braid of her hair.

Within her feature spread, the 33-year-old opens up about her critically acclaimed current album ‘When I Get Home,’ its accompanying film, the notion of drawing on art to confront and conquer fear, black cowboy culture, and more.

Peep pics and quotes after the jump…

Solange on Inspiration Behind ‘When I Get Home’ – I wanted to get to the point to where I allowed the supernatural, the Spirit, or whatever it was, to stare at it face to face, and not let it make me afraid. A lot of the album is confronting that very spirit. I feel really good at the end of this record because of all that I had to go through to complete it. That I was finally able to get to that place, to where that shit doesn’t scare me anymore. I can invite it in.

Solange on Her Homecoming – I felt bare, I felt naked, I felt really seen, and a lot of it was letting go of the ego.  I think being someone who has been so visible since they were a child, when you deserve the space to have that solitude with yourself that is a moment…And I think my relationship to blackness as a space, as a dimension, as a color has really helped me to confront that visibility in a new light.

Solange on Black Cowboy Culture – I remember watching this documentary, and it started with this black cowboy saying, “Who the fuck is John Wayne?” It just stuck with me as a premise and a foundation for the entire film. This is not a fad, this is not a trend, this is not an aesthetic. This is real lives of black men and women who, every weekend, are going to the Zydeco, who are packing up their horses and trail-riding from Texas to Louisiana, who have been doing this for decades and decades.

Solange on Working with Jacolby – You combined all of the elements that I spoke about: black rodeo culture, black cowboy culture; the way that sculpture and architecture is another language of expression for me. All of those things—Third Ward Houston, the lineage of growing up in a neighborhood that had so much rich black culture. You literally took all of those elements and landed the ship in Third Ward Houston in the end of the video.

Solange on Collaborating With Artists – It can be so beautiful and so fruitful. Sometimes you need someone else’s voice to speak to what you are afraid to say out loud about yourself! I appreciate [Jacolby] doing that for me.

      • Clarkson November 8, 2019

    Her songs are horrible

    Losing u and dont touch my hair are her best songs till date.

    Her videos are stunning to watch tho. Very odd and out of the box. I have a strong feeling beyonce copies Solange a bit.

    • biancacook November 8, 2019

      i been saying she copies solange. now all of a sudden she so artsy when her whole thing was about visuals and vocals

      • Clarkson November 8, 2019

        Camilla would never copy though. Bet said she wish she was latina but Camilla already is latina

  3. biancacook November 8, 2019

    ugh her and beyonce speak like they are just soooooo prolific but make music like apeshit ugh just say how u feel all this extra stuff that took days to write and rehearse to sound enlightened is unnecessary cuz we know yall don’t talk like that in real life.

    • Clarkson November 8, 2019

      Yeah, her and Beyonce always want to sound deep, and knowledgable and woke etc but they just sound phoney and silly. Most of the time they dont even know what they are talking about.

      It’s the same thing with Frank ocean and kanye west.

      People eat it up tho.

    • Clarkson November 8, 2019

      We all saw the elevator video, so we know how she acts real life. ??????

      Woke, enlightened, deep thinkers dont do that.

    • Clarkson November 8, 2019

      They wish they sounded educated and classy like Camilla

  4. Drinkmybussyjuice November 8, 2019

    She’s really full of herself. You cant help but roll your eyes and say Girrrrl when she talks. This album was terrible. A

  8. Franklin Wright November 9, 2019

  9. King Khia November 9, 2019
