Solange put out a video today. Here, watch it. I’ll wait.
I loved her last record, her collaborations since then, her cover of Dirty Projectors “Stillness is the Move,” but this… is a perfect song. I love the beats, her voice, the breakdown 2 and a half minutes in. It’s almost an R&B version of a Frankie Rose song. I know this sounds crazy.
They both have a dreamy and repetitive quality to them.
The video shows Solange in South Africa, hanging out with her friends, dancing in front of local business and jumping in pools with her clothes on. It is marvelous.
And the clothes…!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish I had more money so I could hire Solange’s stylist and have him or her teach me how to mix prints. I am going through my closet this weekend and putting outfits of mixed prints together and stare at myself in the mirror.
Of course Pitchfork did a story on it and named “Losing You” Best New Track. I have already preordered the 12″ (out on a label co-owned by Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear, who have also been in the news lately).
