'A place to scream, release, feel freedom': Beyonce Introduces New Album 'Renaissance'

Thursday, 28 July 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Beyoncé has shared on a note on her website introducing her new album.

'Renaissance', the follow-up to 2016's 'Lemonade', is due for release on July 29, and according to the statement is 'act i' of a "three act project." The Texan artist explained what inspired it and the intentions when creating it:

"This three act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic. A time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative.

"Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.

"I want to give a special thank you to Rumi, Sir, and Blue for allowing me the space, creativity, and inspiration. And a special thanks to my beautiful husband and muse, who held me down during those late nights in the studio. A big thank you to my uncle Johnny. He was my godmother and the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album. Thank you to all of the pioneers who originate culture, to all of the fallen angels whose contributions have gone unrecognized for far too long. This is a celebration for you. Thank you to my Parkwood crew, my slab, Dream, and all of the talented producers involved. Mama, I luhhhh you. To my father, my O.G., my first teacher: You inspire me in every move that I make. I love you.

"To all of my fans: I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.

"Love y’all deep, B"
