When Beyoncé poses for 'British Vogue,' she teases what fans might expect from the "Renaissance" album.

The BeyHive has had an amazing Thursday, and Queen Bey has another trick up her sleeve! Not only has Beyoncé announced that Renaissance,

 her long-awaited seventh studio album and first solo album in six years, will be released on July 29, but the GRAMMY winner has also been revealed as the cover star of British Vogue's July issue.

Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful takes readers on a surreal journey as he describes the process of putting together Rafael Pavarotti's "fashion fantasia" picture session for the issue

mother-of-enticing three's clues about upcoming endeavor. Beyoncé is surprised by JAY-Z and her children for a "weird" family day out, which Enninful called a "great ambience" on set.

When it comes to Renaissance, Beyoncé's first solo album since 2016's Lemonade, the editor claims that the protracted creative process contributed to the pandemic.

 It provided her with "You'll have a lot more time to think about and evaluate each decision. That's just how she likes it."

Fans may pre-order the album on Beyoncé's website, which includes four box sets that include a CD, T-shirt, mini-poster, and a 28-page photo booklet. 

The merchandise "begins delivering on July 29th, following record release," according to the website. Fans can also add the album to their Spotify and/or Apple Music playlists ahead of time.

Despite the fact that Renaissance will be Beyoncé's first full-length studio album in years, she has a large discography. She collaborated with her husband on the 2018 album Everything Is Love

as well as the 2019 soundtrack for Disney's The Lion King: The Gift. Homecoming: The Live Album, which accompanied her epic Coachella performance in 2018, was published the same year.
