We have to admit, he did drop a few clues alluding to new music last week when, on March 7, he shared a mysterious app with fans, which featured a countdown clock and retro alien game, but the real giveaway came when the app began unveiling new tracks every half-hour.
Still, we weren't totally sure what all that meant - OK, so not quite a Queen Bey move, but almost there - until now when we can officially announce that the six-time Grammy winner's debut record, Recess, will hit iTunes and store shelves on March 18 (it's about damn time).
But you don't have to wait till then to hear it because you can stream all 11 tracks below - you’re welcome - which should also help get you psyched for Skrillex's just announced Osheaga appearance.
"Recess was conceived and recorded in Los Angeles, Seattle, Seoul, London, Stockholm, San Francisco and Brooklyn with guests like Ragga Twins, Chance The Rapper, Diplo, Passion Pit vocalist Michael Angelakos, OWSLA stars Kill The Noise, Alvin Risk and up-and-comers Milo and Otis."
