Beyoncé has appeared to confirm that act i - RENAISSANCE is the first release from a three-act project.

Tomorrow (29 July) Beyoncé will release act i - RENAISSANCE, her first solo allbum since 2016's Lemonade, and according to a photo of a booklet that comes with the vinyl edition of the album, Beyoncé confirms that RENAISSANCE is part of a three-act project.

"This three act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic," Beyoncé wrote. "A time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative."

Beyoncé has only released one single from the album - "Break My Soul" - which sampled Robin S.'s '90s house hit "Show Me Love".

Last month, Beyoncé wrote of the Lemonade follow-up, "Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration."

act i - RENAISSANCE features composer credits for BloodPop, A. G. Cook, Drake, Labrinth, Tems, Skrillex, Lucky Daye, SYD, Nija Charles, Honey Dijon, Moi Renee, 070 Shake, The-Dream, MIKE DEAN, Raphael Saadiq, No I.D., DIXSON, GuiltyBeatz, Hit-Boy, The Neptunes, Rami Yacoub, Nova Wav, P2J, Boi-1da, Sevn Thomas, Leven Kali, BEAM, Jahaan Sweet, Kelman Duran and Dave Hamelin.

Beyoncé's act i - RENAISSANCE album will be released tomorrow (29 July).
