The music critic unpacks the significance and features of Solange’s latest album, When I Get Home.
At this stage, Solange needs little introduction. Since 2016’s A Seat at the Table, the Texan-born singer, songwriter and choreographer has established herself as an immensely talented artist exploring and celebrating the Black experience through music and movement. Aided by a stacked lineup of collaborators, which includes Earl Sweatshirt, Panda Bear, Gucci Mane, Dev Hynes, Sampha, Pharrell Williams, Raphael Saadiq, Metro Boomin and Standing on the Corner, she continues that exploration with her newest album, When I Get Home. To help parse out this dense and deeply personal effort, Vivian welcomes music critic Kiana Fitzgerald, who’s written for NPR, Complex, The FADER, and others, to the studio.
