Beyonce new album rumours get quashed

In the past week, there’s been much speculation regarding the second surprise release from Beyoncé thanks to a series of supposed leaked images of her new album details. Now, a representative for the singer has confirmed that the pop star will in fact release a platinum edition boxset of her 2013 self-titled album, including two brand new songs and a disc of live performances.                    

Released on 24 November, the deluxe package of her solo visual album features the previously unveiled Flawless Remix featuring Nicki Minaj, as well as brand new collaborations with Kanye West, who features on Drunk in Love alongside Jay Z, a remix of Blow featuring Pharrell, who originally co-wrote the track, Standing on the Sun remix featuring Jamaican dancehall star Mr Vegas.  

The 2 CD/2 DVD limited edition package will also feature all new tracks 7/11 and Ring Off as well as a live performance DVD that chronicles her Mrs Carter Show World Tour and “The official 2015 Beyoncé mini calendar”.

Fans who previously purchased the original Beyoncé album, which was released in December 2013, will be able to add the bonus materials to their library. It is available to pre-order now.                   

News of the platinum album does not altogether rule out a future release from the artist this year: after all, reports have been mounting that Jay Z and Beyoncé are working on a “top secret” collaboration album, following the success of this year’s On the Run joint tour. – The Guardian
