Beyonce’s new double album is set to be released in U.S. stores on November 18 and with the new album comes a new name…Sasha Fierce.
The album is titled just that: ‘I Am … Sasha Fierce’ and she has released a statement discussing the change:
“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am.
“Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.”
Additionally, she has set up a MySpace page that gives a “lucky person” the opportunity to receive a personal message and a gift bag valued at $500.
Beyonce released her previous solo album, “B’Day,” to coincide with her 25th birthday in September 2006. It debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. pop chart and yielded the No. 1 single “Irreplaceable.”
“I Am … Sasha Fierce” will be distributed by Columbia Records.
