Beyoncé releases cover art, inspiration for new album, ‘Renaissance’

In the caption on the cover art, Beyoncé explained that she made “Renaissance” amid the COVID-19 pandemic when millions faced shutdowns. “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” she wrote. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving.”
