New Beyonce Album Set for Release on Tuesday, November 18

Sony Columbia Records - 09/09/2008

Music World Music/Columbia Records will release the third full-length studio album from the international superstar and cultural icon Beyonce on Tuesday, November 18.

One of 2008's most hotly anticipated new album releases, Beyonce's as-yet-untitled upcoming album marks the artist's first new studio collection since the Grammy-winning multi-platinum-selling B'Day debuted at #1 on charts around the world shortly after its international release on September 4, 2006 (in celebration of Beyonce's 25th birthday).

Beyonce's fans will get their first glimpse of the artist's new album with the simultaneous release of two of the album's key tracks -- "If I Were A Boy" and "Single Ladies" -- scheduled to impact radio on October 7.

With all songs co-written and co-produced by Beyonce, the artist's third studio album is her most personal, reflective and revelatory collection to-date.

Lensed live at Radio City Music Hall on September 5, Beyonce's spectacular performance at the "Fashion Rocks" fifth anniversary extravaganza, a star-studded concert honoring the relationship between music and fashion, will be broadcast on CBS on Tuesday, September 9 at 9pm (ET/PT). Please check your local listings.
