Beyonce Speaks On New Album Release

There has been talk all week that the new Beyonce album would probably be pushed back until early 2009 because she didn't make the cut off date of October 1 in getting the tracks to the label on time. But I guess those were just pesky little rumors because Bey just issued a statement via her official website. From what she's saying, she may be coming out with a really huge cd. A possible 70 songs??? How in the hell would that work? Anyways, here's what she had to say:

“I wanted to address my fans about my upcoming album. I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny’s Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now and I wanted people to see the many sides of me. The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here. I am not afraid and my music will explain it all. There is no label or tag on my sound. It’s me and I am so excited to share it with the world on November 18.
Love,
Beyoncé”

How many of those 70 will make the cut? We shall see! It was previously announced that two tracks from Beyonce’s album, “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies,” will be released in advance of the LP on October 7.
