Beyoncé’s new music comes like falling asleep: slowly, then all at once. After six years without a new solo album – and only a few cryptic hints in recent days that something was up – Queen B has followed her tradition of surprise record announcements during the streaming platform Tidal, which is owned by her husband. Jay Z, tweeted in the morning of June 16 that Renaissance arrived.

This is his first true solo album since his critically acclaimed LP Lemonade, who she caught by surprise on Tidal in 2016 after dropping a series of clues on social media. Before that, she released her self-titled fifth studio album in 2013 – also without warning. So when the music titan recently began deleting his profile pictures from Instagram, Twitter and other accounts, fans were certain that finally, a new record was finally on the way.

They were right. Now embarking on her brand new era, Beyoncé changed her Instagram bio to announce the July 29 release of Renaissance and made the cover of British vogue for a brief profile teasing what’s to come as well as posed for a series of great photos. These images feature the 28-time Grammy winner posing among golden backdrops — with horses, motorcycles and oversized disco balls, for example — that look both old-fashioned and futuristic. Are these aesthetics any indication of what his new album will sound like? That remains to be revealed.

The room did share, however, a handful of details regarding what the record will look like and when it was made. Additionally, Beyoncé herself has been doling out some hints on her website and social media accounts. Keep reading to see it all Billboard knows about Beyoncé Renaissance album below.
