Featuring cowboys, DeLoreans, and glam
As expected, the film is impressive in scope. It flicks between tight group choreography, sensual solo shots, and surreal landscapes, over songs from When I Get Home (obviously). And, to prove she can do pretty much anything she sets her mind to, Solange directed and edited it herself, in collaboration with a host of contributing directors: Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori.
The companion piece is also filled with some interesting images that will stick in your mind long after the final chords fade out. Think: a fleet of DeLoreans, a sparkling headpiece (carrying on the whole face jewellery trend she’s got going on), a space-age-looking cowboy, and some machine that wouldn’t look out of place in a rocket ship.
Video from previous teasers also plays a pretty big role in the new film.
The 19-track album When I Get Home released yesterday at midnight, with collabs from the likes of Tyler, the Creator, Sampha, and Dev Hynes. You can stream it (and watch the new video) on Apple Music.
