Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth And Solange Knowles To Collaborate

    With just two days to go before the release of Swing Lo Magellan, there’s some enticing news from Dirty Projectors frontman Dave Longstreth. The Brooklynite told The Guardian recently that he and his “bud” Solange Knowles have some manner of collaboration in the works. “I’m making some beats for her,” Longstreth said. “It’s at a germinative state right now. She’s very busy and it might not be her top priority to just put together an album.”

    As for Solange’s big sis, Longstreth said, “I never bet Beyoncé but Amber did…. It was a pretty brief interaction. I think Beyoncé said, ‘I loved that’, and Amber said, ‘I love you’, and that was about the extent of it.” There’s no word yet on what exactly Solange is doing with the beats. In the meantime, pick up Dirty Projector’s fantastic sixth full-length, due out July 10 in the U.S. and a day earlier overseas. [The Guardian]
