Beyoncé is finally back! 

Queen B has just announced a new album, Renaissance, to be released on July 29, according to a product listing on her website. The record appeared to be labeled “Act I.” 

Streaming services tweeted about the album following Beyoncé’s change of social media bios adding the title and the date. 

No specific details were disclosed, which is only in line with her trademark mysterious release techniques. But an unverified tweet from a tireless fan account Beyoncé Legion, hints Renaissance spans 16 songs. 

After the announcement, British Vogue’s Edward Enninful said he heard the album in person: “Instantly, a wall of sounds hits me,” he said.

“Soaring vocals and fierce beats combine, and in a split second, I’m transported back to the clubs of my youth. 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. I sit back, after the wave, absorbing it all.” 

The Renaissance box set listing counts a CD, T-shirt, and a collectible box, while the product image will update once the campaign artwork is disclosed. In addition, the box will involve a booklet with 28 pages and a mini-poster. 

On Wednesday, following Beyoncé’s profile picture change – it went black, fans quickly pointed out that a graphic post on Twitter from her nonprofit, Beygood, cryptically indicated upcoming music.
