Solange Knowles and The Criterion Channel have dropped the remastered director’s cut of her interdisciplinary performance art film, When I Get Home.

The new version is available to watch on The Criterion Channel and is released in celebration of the film and the album’s second anniversary:

WHEN I GET HOME finds multidisciplinary artist Solange Knowles’s deeply introspective vision of a spiritual expedition reckoning with the question “Where is home?” Accompanying her acclaimed 2019 album of the same name, the film taps imagery of her hometown’s (Houston, TX) culture with flights of surrealism spotlighting Black cowboys, space, futurist worlds, and ritualistic movements that characterize evolution as a recurring presence. Solange explores concepts of origin, fear, safety, and reclamation through the power of ancestral roots and the creation of one’s own kaleidoscopic universe. Presented here in Solange’s director’s cut, WHEN I GET HOME is a dazzling immersion into the imagination of an artist whose vision knows no bounds.”

In addition to the remastered director’s cut, Solange will roll out digital activations on her BlackPlanet page and will include special screenings of several performances and art installations that have taken place since the project’s release. A digital quilt, collaged by Solange herself and featuring images and stories from fans about the album’s impact on their lives, will also be shared.

Watch the remastered director’s cut of When I Get Home on The Criterion Channel.

Elsewhere in music, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah are set to battle it out on VERZUZ.
