With one month to go until its release, Beyoncé has shared the mission statement and cover art for her new album, Renaissance.

The art, as can be seen below alongside Bey’s message to fans, features the singer atop a crystal horse. Photographed by Carlijn Jacobs, the cover for her first solo album since 2016’s Lemonade is particularly striking. Renaissance, which Bey has teased as Act I: Renaissance, possibly indicating more new music on the way, is set to arrive on July 29. Before it arrives, though, Bey has a message for the fans.

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world," she wrote alongside the art. "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."

She added that she hopes the record inspires listeners to “release the wiggle,” implying that fans can expect more dance-forward tracks like “Break My Soul,” the lead single.

Outside of the few comments Bey has shared about the project, fans still don’t know a whole lot about Renaissance. We do know, however, that it’ll feature 16 tracks. Regardless, we don’t have to wait much longer to hear the full thing.
