Solange has revealed that she is working with members of Dirty Projectors and Chairlift on her new studio album.

The singer released her 'True' EP in 2012 and is set to follow it up with a full-length record in 2014, having signed a deal to set up her own record label Saint. Speaking to Billboard, Solange revealed she is working with Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors and Chairlift drummer Patrick Wimberly. SBTRKT and Drake collaborator Sampha is also helping with the project.

"I'm actually trying to give myself a deadline this time around. One of the pros of being independent is having that space and that time," she said. "But it's also a major con when you don’t set aside a deadline and keep going and keep going. When you have a goal in mind you definitely stay motivated. I’m trying to stay motivated because I know it took four years before my last record came out. That is not happening – it's gonna come out next year."

Solange recently cancelled all her European summer festival dates in order to focus making the record. The singer issued an apology, saying that she needs to spend time concentrating on her family life and new album.
