The Beyhive woke up to twerk-worthy news on Thursday with Beyonce finally confirming the arrival of her new music.
Renaissance, her seventh studio album, will be a two-part project with Act I set for release on July 29 and available on various streaming services, with Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal among those promoting the news on their platforms.
It’s set to become Beyonce’s first album in six years following the release of the Grammy-nominated visual album Lemonade in 2016, and is expected to precede a set of pop-up shows across the UK this summer.
In an interview last year, the 40-year-old singer explained how she used the Covid lockdowns as an excuse to hone in on writing the album, and now an insider has revealed exactly what we can expect from the new era of Beyonce.
A source told us: ‘She played some of the new records for some friends and the consensus is that it’s her happiest body of work to date.
‘It’s a natural continuation from her last two records because she wrote them out of her desire to find peace in the world and in her marriage. She is in a place where she feels like that is possible, and wrote songs which reflect where she is with her faith as a Christian.’
