Solange drops two dreamy new videos from A Seat At The Table

The singer shared ‘Cranes in the Sky’ and ‘Don’t Touch My Hair’ on Saint Heron last night

Solange has shared two dreamy new videos from her third studio album, A Seat At The Table. 

The singer unveiled “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Cranes In The Sky” on her Saint Heron website last night (October 2). The clips – which are led by sparse, colourful visuals and captivating choreography – were directed by both Solange and her husband, music video director Alan Ferguson.

According to Saint Heron, both videos feature women and men of colour “liberating” themselves “through costumes and choreography, as well as moods conveyed via flawless scenery and set design”.

“A Seat at the Table is a musical representation of the spirit within an unapologetically Black woman who is not interested in remaining silent in a critical time of identity, empowerment, grief, healing and self-expression – let alone, artistic expression,” the introduction explains.

The long-awaited albumreleased last Friday, was written, arranged and co-produced by the singer, and has been described as her “most proud body of work.” It features collaborations with Tweet, Kelela, and Sampha (who also makes a brief appearance in the “Don’t Touch My Hair” video).
