Just when you thought the year was going to end all cold and filled with Christmas tunes, Beyonce comes out of nowhere with new material.
Yep. 14 new tracks of musical goodies, plus 17 music videos to match and more. Who else will you find on the new compilation? Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Pharrell Williams, Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland, Timbaland and….Blue Ivy.
As of right now, you can only download the album in its entirety for $15.99. Individual songs will be available for sale, beginning Friday, December 20th. If you’re curious about one of the videos, Beyonce posted a clip of one of her videos called “Blow.”
Peep the clip after the jump as well as quotes from Beyonce’s press release..
“I see music,” says Beyoncé about her decision to create a visual album. “It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music.
“I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it,” she states. “I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”
“I just want to give my album to the people I love and respect and hope that they feel the same thing I felt when I made the music,” said Beyoncé.
