A new director’s cut of When I Get Home is heading our way. 

The singer-songwriter has announced that a new version of the companion film to her album of the same name will make its debut July 17 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas. Following a month-long theatrical run, the film will debut on streaming services on August 5.

According to a press release, the 41-minute long new version (up from its 33-minute length at release) will include “new scenes and musical arrangements.”

Solange previously said in a statement, “When I was younger I would fear what the people called the Holy Spirit and what it would do to the men and women around me. I never wanted it to catch me, and was terrified on how it might transform me if it did! Much of this film is surrendering to that fear. After a really tough health year and the loss of the body that I once knew, the film is an invitation for that same spirit to manifest through me and the work I want to continue to create.”
