A “director’s cut” version of Solange’s visual album When I Get Home will be screened at art museums and theaters across the country.
She dropped the 33-minute visual for her fourth latest album in March, making it available exclusively on Apple Music.
Now an extended version is coming to a screening near you starting next week, featuring “new scenes and musical arrangements” with a new runtime of 41 minutes, according to Rolling Stone. It will show in 13 museums and theaters around the U.S., plus Paris and London.
The visual project, which Knowles called an interdisciplinary performance art film, shows her returning to her hometown of Houston.
“The film is an exploration of origin, asking the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution,” a press release explained in March. “The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this.”
Solange said of her film in a statement, “When I was younger I would fear what the people called the Holy Spirit and what it would do to the men and women around me. I never wanted it to catch me, and was terrified on how it might transform me if it did! Much of this film is a surrendering to that fear. After a really tough health year and the loss of the body that I once knew, the film is an invitation for that same spirit to manifest through me and the work I want to continue to create.”
The extended When I Get Home will arrive on streaming services on August 5th.
