Beyoncé is coming back guns blazing in 2013, and it looks like she won’t be doing it alone. In a surprise announcement this morning, Bey revealed that Destiny’s Child will release their first new music in nearly a decade.
“I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny’s Child music in eight years!” she wrote in a Facebook post.
DC have recorded a new Pharell Williams-produced track titled “Nuclear” for the upcoming compilation album, Love Songs. The compilation is set for release on January 22 on Sony Legacy and is currently available for pre-order from Amazon.
In addition to “Nuclear,” Love Songs will feature Destiny’s Child classics recorded between 1997 and 2004, including “Now That She’s Gone” and “Cater 2 U.”
DC announced their breakup in 2005 while touring in support of their fourth album, Destiny Fulfilled. Bey, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have released three, two and one solo albums in the interim, respectively.
After taking a step back from music in 2012 following the birth of her first child, Beyoncé has been announced as the halftime performer for this year’s Super Bowl. She will also be the focus of a documentary to be released in February on HBO. Yesterday, Bey made headlines for a sexy cover shoot in GQ magazine as one of the “Sexiest Women of the 21st Century.”
