Watch Solange’s ‘Don’t Touch My Hair’ & ‘Cranes in the Sky’ Videos

Solange shares new music videos for A Seat at the Table's "Don't Touch My Hair" and "Cranes in the Sky"

On Friday, Solange Knowles triumphantly returned with her fourth studio album, A Seat at the Table. A sprawling 21 tracks long, the project features contributions by Lil Wayne, Sampha, Blood Orange, Tweet, Moses Sumney, Q-Tip, The-Dream, Kelly Rowland, Kelela, Sean Nicholas Savage, Olugbenga, Kwes, Adam Bainbridge (Kindness) and many more.


Described as “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing,” it’s accompanied by a digital book of lyrics/poems and photos taken by Barcelona-based photographer Carlota Guerrero, who shot the album’s cover image and is credited with art direction on the project.

Late Sunday night, Solange shared a pair of new music videos off the album for the Sampha-featuring “Don't Touch My Hair” and “Cranes in the Sky.” Directed by Solange and the singer’s husband, Alan Ferguson, the videos have the kind of gorgeous aesthetic you’d expect from a Solange visual.

A Seat at the Table is out now. You can grab it at Apple Music.
