“I remember seeing ‘Thriller’ on TV with my family. It was an event. We all sat around the TV and I’m now looking back and I’m so lucky I was born around that time. I miss that immersive experience,” Beyonce says in the video. “Now people only listen to a few seconds of the song on their iPods. They don’t really invest in a whole album.

“I see music,” Beyonce said about her decision to create a visual album. “It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music.”

“I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it,” Beyonce said about why she released it as a surprise. “I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”
