Each “listening event” will be live streamed via Solange Inc.
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.
