After releasing her first album in four years last Friday, Solange has followed up with two music videos for tracks “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Cranes in the Sky.” Solange co-directed the A Seat at the Table videos with her husband, director Alan Ferguson. He has worked on videos for artists including Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Janelle Monae, and Solange’s sister, Beyonce.

Both videos follow a similar visual aesthetic, using the repetition of color and composition to create a portrait-like scene. Similarly, both feature Solange dancing to choreography, sometimes alone, but most often with other dancers. Singer Sampha appears in the “Don’t Touch My Hair” video, as well.
