Beyoncé shared her thoughts on her new album Cowboy Carter on Friday morning.

The Texas-born star said his first country album is the best he’s ever made.

“The joy of creating music is that there are no rules,” Beyoncé said. “The more I see the world evolve, the more I feel a deeper connection to purity.”

The mother of three added that with artificial intelligence and digital filters and programming, “I wanted to go back to real instruments, and I was using very old instruments.”

“I didn’t want some layers of instruments like strings, especially guitars, and organs to be perfectly in tune.”

He added that he wanted some of the songs to be “raw” and that he “leaned toward folk.”

The star ended with: “All the sounds were so organic and human, everyday things like the wind, clicking and even the sound of birds and chickens, the sounds of nature,” she said.

The mother of three added that with artificial intelligence and digital filters and programming, “I wanted to go back to real instruments, and I was using very old instruments.”

The press release reveals the inspiration behind the album and how each “song is its own version of a reimagined Western film.”

Some of the films that served as inspiration include The Hateful Eight, Space Cowboys, The Harder They Fall and the recent Oscar-nominated film Killers of the Flower Moon.

The album is considered “an academic and declarative frequency shift, as the world prepares to change again, that redefines and reconstructs what country and Americana is, and who can be included.”

Beyoncé’s eighth studio album landed in nine different genres on the US music charts, including Pop, Hot AC, Country, Rhythmic, Urban and R&B, and made history as Beyoncé became the first black female artist to reach No. 1 on the Hot chart. Country Songs and number 1 on the Hot 100 list with a country song.

It also spent four weeks at the top of the UK music charts.

The album deals with genres, all of them, although deeply rooted in Country.

The star ended with: “All the sounds were so organic and human, everyday things like the wind, clicking and even the sound of birds and chickens, the sounds of nature,” she said.

‘This is the work of an artist who thrives in her freedom to grow, expand and create limitlessly. She does not apologize or ask permission to elevate, amplify and redefine the sounds of music, as she dismantles false accepted norms about American culture. “She pays homage to the past, honoring the musical pioneers of country, rock, classical music and opera,” the press release adds.

The album is a cornucopia of sounds that Beyoncé loves and grew up listening to, between visits and eventually performances at the Houston Rodeo: Country, original Rhythm & Blues, Blues, Zydeco and Black Folk, she added.

‘The album is wrapped in pure instrumentation in an authentic gumbo of celebration of sounds using, among others, the accordion, harmonica, washboard, acoustic guitar, bass ukulele, pedal steel guitar, a Vibra- Slap, mandolin, fiddle, Hammond B3 organ, tack piano and banjo. “There’s also a lot of clapping, horseshoe steps, boot stomping on hardwood floors, and yes, those are Beyoncé’s nails as percussion,” the statement added.
