SZA is sharing details about the upcoming deluxe version of her chart-topping 2022 album, SOS.
During her album celebration event at New York’s Brooklyn Navy Yard on Friday (Sept. 8), the 33-year-old Grammy winner announced that she’ll be releasing a deluxe version of her groundbreaking sophomore album, featuring seven to 10 new tracks.
“So the deluxe is like a whole ‘nother album, and it’s called Lana. It’s seven to 10 songs, and it’ll be out this fall,” SZA is heard saying in a fan-captured video at the show.
The TDE singer-songwriter, whose real name is Solána Rowe, performed unreleased tracks and fan favorites during the exclusive show in Brooklyn. The event also included a surprise appearance from Ice Spice, according to People.
“Heads up, we don’t actually have a plan,” SZA reportedly said at the event. “We’re just playing some songs off the deluxe, and we’re just gonna play a couple of songs you already know. It was really just — I just wanted to do something for free that was a vibe ’cause I was here in town. Literally there’s no other point to this whatsoever.”
Upon its release in December 2022, SOS debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming her first chart-topper. With more than 400 million streams in the U.S. during its release week, the set became the second-largest streaming week for a female artist and third-largest of 2022 among all albums.
SOS also enjoyed a non-consecutive 10-week run atop the Billboard 200. During that time, SZA launched the aptly titled SOS Tour, which grossed $34.5 million and sold 238,000 tickets, according to Billboard Boxscore.
In late August, SZA shared the music video for “Snooze,” which features some of today’s hottest male stars, including Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco. The SOS track notched SZA her second No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay in July.
