Beyoncé Confirms That New Music Is On The Way

After spending a “year and a half” in the studio, Beyoncé has promised that new “music is coming.”

The 39-year-old R&B superstar (born Beyoncé Giselle Knowles) has revealed that she spent a significant amount of COVID-19 time locked away in the studio laying down new tracks. And now that the world appears to be re-opening she can’t wait to unveil her new repertoire.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar for their Icon issue, Mrs Carter stated: “With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible. I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half … Yes, the music is coming!”

Since her last solo studio album ‘Lemonade’ was released in 2016 her subsequent projects were the collaborative full length Everything Is Love with her husband Jay-Z and the Black Is King visual album and soundtrack she created for Disney’s 2019 remake of The Lion King.

Discussing her perfectionist tendencies when crafting her songs Beyoncé stated: “Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old.”

Elsewhere in the cover story interview, the former Destiny’s Child lead singer addressed how much her own parents, Tina Knowles-Lawson and Mathew Knowles, have inspired her music career. “My mother has always been my Queen and still is. She has always been so strong and is filled with humanity. She worked 18 hours a day with calloused hands and swollen feet. No matter how tired she was, she was always professional, loving, and nurturing. I try to handle my work and run my company in the same way. My father constantly encouraged me to write my own songs and create my own vision. He is the reason I wrote and produced at such a young age.”
