Solange has announced her new project, A Seat At The Table, revealing both the artwork and tracklist for the upcoming album on Twitter today.The project will be her first since 2012's True EP, and is set to feature guest appearances from Lil Wayne, The-Dream, Kelly Rowland, Q-Tip, Kelela, BJ The Chicago Kid, Dev Hynes and Tweet.He recently released his album “Process,” and now would definitely be a great time to snag him. We don’t know how deep Lou Fest’s pockets are, but we suspect he could be out of the festival’s price range.Marshmello • A sold-out December concert by Marshmello at the Pageant could fittingly lead to a Lou Fest appearance should the festival explore EDM sounds a little more. That has us expecting her to announce a slew of dates any time now. Father John Misty • Father John Misty definitely impressed with a pair of 2015 St.Louis shows: an opening slot for Alabama Shakes at the Fox Theatre and a headlining slot at the Pageant.Jamiroquai, off the scene since “Rock Dust Light Star” (2010), is on the comeback trail with two new songs, “Automation” and “Cloud 9,” from the upcoming album “Automation.” We’re hoping for a slew of U. dates to be announced soon; the act has only announced international dates through November. The rapper is doing some intimate shows before heading out on a tour of large venues. Cody Jinks • Country singer Cody Jinks stirred up all kinds of noise with his 2016 appearances at the Old Rock House and with his “I’m Not the Devil” album.
Today, our boss lady, singer-songwriter and artist Solange presents to us Solange highlights both the troubling conversations that come along with being a Black woman in the midst of cultural and socio-political shifts in America, and the truth and triumphs that come along with being a part of an ever-resilient, multifaceted, people. Hear vocal assistance and narration from some of R&B’s most influential young and old: Lil’ Wayne, Master P, Kelly Rowland, Sampha, Kelela, Dev Hynes, Tweet, Q-Tip and more.
Kid Cudi or Lupe Fiasco • Kid Cudi and Lupe Fiasco have fallen out of the popular rap circles, overshadowed by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J. Uncle Tupelo • A one-time-only reunion of the seminal alt-country band from Belleville would be a dream at Lou Fest.
Cole and Chance the Rapper, but they’re both still forces with their “Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’” and “DROGAS Light” albums, respectively.
A Lou Fest slot would fill the same headlining role as Outkast in 2014.
Lorde • Offbeat New Zealand pop singer Lorde is about to reappear after a prolonged absence.
