Beyoncé Reveals Track List for ‘Renaissance’ Album, Dropping 29th July
*Beyonce Knowles has revealed the tracklist for her upcoming seventh studio album titled “Renaissance,” dropping July 29.
“Renaissance”, the follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed “Lemonade” sees the touch of great producers like Ryan Tedder and Raphael Saadiq. As reported by Uproxx, a source familiar with the album. “Renaissance” is a collection the superstar is calling “Act 1,” suggesting that more acts will follow the initial release.
Recall last year, Beyonce speaking to Harper’s Bazaar about her forthcoming new music, said, “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again.”
She added, “I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible.”
Edward Enninful, Britsh Vogue editor-in-chief described being “transported back to the clubs of my youth” when Queen Bey previewed some of her new music for him.
He noted the “Soaring vocals and fierce beats” and wrote in the July Vogue issue: “I want to get up and start throwing moves. It’s music I love to my core. Music that makes you rise, that turns your mind to cultures and subcultures, to our people past and present, music that will unite so many on the dance floor, music that touches your soul. As ever with Beyoncé, it is all about the intent.”
Enninful added, “The creation has been a long process, she explains, with the pandemic giving her far longer to spend thinking and re-thinking every decision. Just the way she likes it.”
Beyoncé shared the album’s cover art earlier his month and said: “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 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.”
