UPDATED 6:45pm ET: Solange has confirmed that the new album, called “When I Get Home,” will be released at midnight ET.

In a highly enthusiastic profile last fall, the New York Times said that Solange’s new album, the follow-up to 2016’s critically lauded “A Seat at the Table,” would “likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment, like a meteor cratering into the culture.” Judging by the singer’s social media posts this week, the meteor will be landing any minute.

On Thursday she dropped her fourth and fifth social media posts of the week, two of which includes music — snippets of a songs with cool, lush grooves that sound very in line with what one would expect the follow-up to “A Seat at the Table” to sound like. Thursday morning’s post also included a caption containing a phone number referenced in fellow Houston native Mike Jones’ 2005 song “Back Then,” with the promise of a “special announcement” on the hotline, although unsurprisingly calls to the number have produced only a busy signal thus far; later Thursday she dropped what appears to be a track listing for the album.

“There is a lot of jazz at the core,” the singer said of the album. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.” It was recorded in New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon with members of the band that toured with her behind “Seat at the Table.” The singer revealed earlier this year that she’s been working with producer Steve Lacy, a member of The Internet who has also collaborated with Kendrick Lamar.

All three of this week’s posts feature stylized video or photos. On Tuesday, she announced her new personalized page on BlackPlanet, the long-running social network, which includes new photos, GIFs, and text.

Solange is scheduled to perform at several festivals this year, including Coachella, Bonnaroo and Primavera in Spain. Among other performances behind “A Seat at the Table” in 2017, Solange performed an elaborate dance/performance-art piece called “In Ode to” around the album’s songs at New York’s Guggenheim Museum that featured approximately 100 dancers. A similar but less complex staging was taken on tour, including dates at the Hollywood Bowl and one with Frank Ocean at New York’s Panorama Festival in the summer of 2017.
