Beyoncé shocked the internet on Thursday when she revealed that her new album, “Renaissance,” will be released on July 29.
The much-anticipated news was made by Tidal, the video streaming platform, in a tweet on Thursday.
The 40-year-old singer will release her seventh studio album after teaming with her husband Jay-Z on their unexpected joint project “Everything Is Love” in 2018.
According to eagle-eyed followers, the singer’s social media accounts were wiped clean last week when her profile photographs were removed from her YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok accounts.
Last year, the multi-Grammy Award winner hinted at new music in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, saying, “I see a renaissance emerging.”
“I think we’re all ready to go, travel, love, and laugh again after all the isolation and injustice of the previous year,” she told the magazine. “I sense a renaissance afoot, and I want to help nurture that escape in any way I can.”
She revealed a few information about her creative process, including the fact that her albums take a long time to finish.
“Nothing, however, compares to the amount of love, passion, and healing that I experience in the recording studio,” she went on to say. “After 31 years, it still delights me as much as it did when I was nine years old.” “The music is on its way,” says the narrator.
The singer has cooperated with JAY-Z on the 2018 album “Everything Is Love” since her 2016 album “Lemonade.”
“Homecoming,” a live album released in 2019, gives audiences a behind-the-scenes peek at her epic Coachella performance.
Later, she was featured on the soundtrack for Disney’s new blockbuster “The Lion King.”
In 2020, she released another matching visual album, “Black Is King.”
