Solange Knowles is adding more than just the vibrant single, "Losing You," to her comeback. The singer is providing her fans with a sneak peak at her forthcoming seven-song EP, True. Filled with soft, 1980s pop-inspired tracks, the EP is pretty lighthearted, but Knowles claimed it wasn't always that way.

 

"My references for the record were all Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, not just their typical Janet and Prince stuff, but SOS Band and their b-sides with Chaka Khan," Solange explained to V. "At first the songs were really dark because I had a premonition before the record that I was going to die. I was having panic attacks and wiling out."

 

The creative maven is still alive and well, promoting the 30-second previews of each of the EP's songs. The full-length versions of the tracks will be available when True is released November 27. However, fans are excited by this little taste and are ready for what's to come.
