Beyoncé Knowles will release her fourth solo album in late June this year.
The singer unveiled six tracks from her latest studio album to label bosses in New York last week, and is believed to have received a rapturous response.
"It was just amazing," Sony Music Australia boss Denis Handlin told The Daily Telegraph. "These songs, the best description I can give is groundbreaking.
"She's gone to another level," Handlin added.
Last week it was announced that Knowles had ended her professional relationship with her father, Mathew Knowles, who has managed the singer's career for 14 years.
The currently untitled album will be released in time for Beyoncé's headlining slot at this year's Glastonbury Festival.
