Earlier tonight we got a look at Beyoncé‘s new music video for Run The World (Girls), now the album cover has just been released for her upcoming album 4, along with a street date – June 28th – which isn’t really all that far off! I think the cover is striking and super simple, that photo of her is totally stunning, thankfully she didn’t try to photoshop her head onto a motorcycle or go crazy with text effects!
Columbia Records will release 4, the fourth solo studio album from Beyoncé on Tuesday, June 28th, 2011. The album was recorded over a year between the spring of 2009 and the spring of 2010, while Beyoncé took time away from the spotlight. She engaged in what she describes as simple things, including listening to every kind of music she truly enjoys. Her mixed musical gumbo will be displayed on the upcoming album.
The title signifies not only the artist’s fourth solo offering and the day of her birth but it is also a personal gift to her fans. For over one year now her fans around the world took to their social media pages urging her to name the album for her special number.
The intensely anticipated video for the album’s lead single, Run The World (Girls), made its premiere on American Idol tonight. Filmed in Los Angeles and the Mojave Desert over three days in April, the Francis Lawrence-directed video boasts a cast of over 200 dancers, a menagerie of exotic animals and Beyoncé as the leader of a stunning army of women.
