Online reports suggest that Evans’ seventh studio album Renaissance has leaked online hours before its release.

The highly anticipated album, which was due to be released at midnight on Thursday, can be found online and CDs are already on sale in Europe. Variety.

The LP is the singer’s first release since 2019’s The Lion King: The Gift and his first studio album since 2016’s Lemonade. The actor started teasing the release of Renaissance last month, when he also confirmed that it will be made available to the public on July 29.

Management at Columbia, the 40-year-old label, are clearly trying to do damage control and have removed tweets with words like ‘leak’ along with the hashtags #Renaissance and #Beyonce. Twitter said on Wednesday that it was “in response to a report from the copyright owner”.

Nevertheless, fans took to social media to urge others to be patient.

One tweeted: “Please don’t ruin it for everyone, especially B who has put 2 years of hard work into this new era we begged for.”

Another said: “Don’t listen to ‘Renaissance’ leaks – Beyonce needs the money because she quit her job!”

Beyonce has already announced that the album will have 16 tracks and will be just over an hour long. As well as lead single Break My Soul, it will also feature collaborations with Beam, Grace Jones and Thames.

He has previously said: “Creating this album gave me a place to dream and find an escape during a terrible time in the world.

“It allowed me to feel free and brave at a time when someone else was acting. My intention was to create a safe space, a space (without judgment). A space free from perfectionism and overthinking.” A place to scream, to release, to feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”
