Beyonce Talks Releasing New Album With No Promotion
Just when it seemed inevitable that no new album would come out of the Beysus empire before 2013 came to a close, Mrs. Carter shocked fans with a surprise midnight visual album release.
Keeping with the theme of late night, secret-squirrel revelations, Bey also spoke out on where she is musically and why she kept her latest lyrical venture under wraps.
On doing a visual album:
I see music. 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. And I think it’s one of the reasons why I wanted to do a visual album.
On what she wanted fans to gain from the visual album:
I wanted people to hear the songs with the story that’s in my head…’cause it’s what makes it mine.
She also revealed the reason why she kept the album rollout a secret and even included behind-the-scenes footage of hubby Hov on set along with a candid video of beach time with Blue Ivy. Check that out, along with the rest of what she had to say, on page 2.
