In case you weren’t sure, the Beyonce sabbatical that really wasn’t now truly is no longer.

Having hinted at her dream of creating her very own genre of music in one of the 15,000 commercials for her Thanksgiving Special, Beyonce is now talking specific album plans.

“Well, I wouldn’t say I’m inventing a new genre,” she said. “I’m mixing every type of genre that I love and I’m inspired by every type of genre.”

Beyoncé went on to say that people should throw any preconceived notions about the follow-up to 2008’s I Am … Sasha Fierce out the window. “I’m not in a box,” she said. “It’s not R&B. It’s not typically pop. It’s not rock. It’s just everything I love all mixed together in my own little gumbo of music.”

The singer says that quite a motley crew of musicians have inspired the album. “Definitely Fela Kuti, the Stylistics. How random, right?” she laughed. “So many people … Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder, of course, Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall … all of those things I’m kind of mixing together.”

For the album, Beyoncé has been hitting the studio with many of her usual collaborators including Ne-Yo, Sean Garrett and Jim Jonsin. And her mom, Tina Knowles, has given the tracks she’s heard so far her seal of approval, saying, “Of course [I heard it]. It’s amazing. It’s so amazing!”

Happy Thanksgiving stans! Maybe by Christmas we’ll have a release date.
