Solange Knowles has cleared out her Twitter account to make space for what we now realise are sneak peeks of her upcoming album A Seat At The Table. The photos she posted are from the digital booklet that accompanies the album, which will be released this Friday, 30 September.

The track listing (pictured below) reveals collaborations with artists including Lil Wayne, Q-Tip, Kelela as well as Kelly Rowland, big sis Beyoncé's former fellow Destiny's Child member.

At a glance, it looks like the kind of chart that belongs in an advanced physics class, but if you think the track listing is deep, wait till you see the digital booklet. It reads almost like your typical modern poetry books, with pages left empty and sometimes only a tiny phrase occupying a whole page.

Elsewhere, pages are also bursting with repeats of "bite the hand" and scattered with random letters. A series of captionless photographs follow, and they are just as mysterious, but very beautiful. Can you expect any less from Solange?
