Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has officially entered a new era with a surprise announcement.
The pop star has named her next album ‘Renaissance‘ and set the release date for July 29.
The album is billed as “act 1,” alluding to the possibility of there being more than one edition of the album or that the 16-track project may be released in multiple parts.
The announcement also comes with new items for sale. Four box sets are available for pre-order on Queen Bey’s official website.
Each set comes with a different t-shirt (not shown to eager purchasers), a physical CD, a 28-page photo booklet, and a mini-poster.
