Solange Is Holding Interactive “When I Get Home” Listening Parties All Across Houston
After debuting a 33-minute video in accompaniment of her new When I Get Home LP, Solange is offering her fans additional content, of the interactive variety. With that said, Solange will be hosting several “album experience” listening events, as she’s labeled them, in and around the Houston-area, the spiritual focus of her new project, in case you didn’t know.
When I Get Home is fairly difficult to boil down (by design) – it does, however, register as a homecoming record of sorts, akin to 6LACK’s East Atlanta Love Letter, or Gil Scott Heron’s Pieces of a Man depicting New York in 1971, to name a few obvious parallels.
Fans who can’t attend in-person (for obvious reasons) are being urged to follow online, by way of live stream technology. Each live stream includes a full run-through of her album, as well as a live discussion moderated by writer/critic Antwaun Sargent.
The first of the listening event is set to occur tonight 6:45 pm Central/7:45 pm Eastern Time, right on the BlackPlanet social networking page established earlier in the week, before the project was confirmed: “official.”
You can stream When I Get Home down below. Although the album was uploaded without proper accreditation (for aesthetic purposes), Solange did, in fact, encourage cross-collaboration on her deeply-personal project. When I Get Home boasts contributions from the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, Pharrell Williams, Playboi Carti, Gucci Mane, Dev Hynes, The-Dream, and even Metro Boomin.
