Solange to Release Compilation Album ‘Saint Heron’
The collection, due in stores Nov. 12, boasts original songs by Jhene Aiko, Cassie and Solange, herself. The LP also features unreleased material from the label’s own roster of talent: Kelela, BC Kingdom, Sampha, Jade De La Fluer, Petite Noir, Starchild, Iman Omari and India Shawn.
“With Saint Heron I really wanted to celebrate and continue to cultivate the community for genre defying R&B artists,” says Solange in a press release. “I’ve personally connected with all of these extremely talented artists, and really excited for us to come together through the compilation as a new movement for music.”
The set’s first single is Kelela’s ‘Go All Night.’ It’s a lush ballad that finds the Los Angeles native cooing seductive lyrics over a mellow, trap music-inspired groove.
Along with the compilation album, the website SaintHeron.com will become a go-to music and cultural hub featuring unique content from the Saint Records family.
“I’m also looking forward to SaintHeron.com being a home for music and cultural enthusiasts like myself who want to see content that really reflects the community we are a part of,” said Solange.
We wish Solange the best of luck with her new label and compilation album, ‘Saint Heron.’
