Beyonce explains her self titled visual album
Beyonce Knowles shocked fans as well as the industry this weekend by releasing a self titled visual album, Beyonce, just a couple of days ago. Noone anticipated this coming, with absolutely no press involved in the release of the album. And now Beyonce explains - in a new mini documentary - her thought process behind the surprise release of both the album and the videos.
"I see music, it's more than just what I hear. When I'm connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images, which are tied to a feeling, an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams, or my fantasies. They're all connected to the music." She goes on to explain that she envisions her music to be an immersive experience - where fans can experience the whole story that is being told through her album both in sound and with visuals. Rather than just relying on the hype of a single song, she wants fans to invest in the body of work as a whole. Beyonce has really introduced a new way of experiencing music - with more artistry than business involved - and we hope that more artists are to follow suit.
