The couple announced the joint album during their concert in London on Saturday, with "album out now" text appearing on a screen.

The music power couple released their new album exclusively on Tidal and if you don't have a subscription, you can listen to 30 second previews of the songs right here.

Everything Is Love is a nine-track project that includes song titles such as "Summer", "713", "Heard About Us", and "Love Happy".

Jay-Z and Beyoncé surprise their fans with a new album.

Mum-of-three Beyonce, 36, told the crowd that they would be dedicating a song to Grenfell victims, saying: "god bless you".

Another said: "Beyonce and Jay Z acknowledging and tributing the residents of Grenfell made me cry".

After she revealed tales of cheating and near-ruin on Lemonade, he followed last year with 4:44, a self-lacerating acknowledgement of misdeeds, earning eight Grammy nominations, including for Album Of The Year.


If Beyoncé is indeed pregnant, it would be the fourth child for her and Jay-Z, which fans are pointing out would be significant as the number four is significant in both entertainer's lives.

The singer gave a sneak peak Saturday of the first video off the album, "Ape S**t", which according to a rep for the project was shot in May at The Louvre in Paris.

The surprise release was also accompanied by a visual for the album's lead single titled "APESHIT".

"I'm like Chief Keef meet Rafiki/Who been Lion King to you/Pocket watch it like kangaroos/Tell these clowns we ain't amused/Banana clips for that monkey business/4-5 got change for you". Bey lovingly leans into Jay, wearing a traditional headdress and shawl wrapped around her shoulders, as Hova returns the love.

Beyoncé also shared other images from "Everything Is Love" including the album cover.

The guys debuted a new sound with Youngblood after they re-discovered Massive Attack.

Kanye West is not on the album, as far as we know.
