Look for a whole lotta Beyoncé under the tree this year. The R&B diva will be hitting fans with a pair of major releases and a TV special just in time for the holiday season. First up is the November 23 release of I Am … Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas, a two-disc live CD/DVD compilation recorded earlier this year at the hotel/casino.
That same day will also see the release of a deluxe edition of the singer’s multiplatinum I Am … Sasha Fierce double album. The reissue will come with two bonus tracks, including “Video Phone (Extended Remix),” which features Lady Gaga. The video for that song will premiere exclusively on MTV on air and online this Thursday.
The new in-concert CD/DVD was filmed during a show at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas on August 2 during a sold-out four-night stint, according to a press release announcing the album. The package contains more than 30 songs from throughout the singer’s career, including four from her three solo albums (“Halo,” “Sweet Dreams,” “Single Ladies [Put a Ring on It],” “Get Me Bodied”), as well as the Destiny’s Child catalog and some surprising covers.
The DVD of the concert is also sprinkled with biographical vignettes woven between the songs, some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and a bonus feature titled “What Happens in Vegas. …”
That release will be followed by a one-hour TV special on ABC on November 26. The show, “Beyoncé — I Am … Yours,” is the first-ever prime-time network special by Beyoncé. It will air at 9 p.m. and feature behind-the-scenes and concert footage from the DVD.
The track list for I Am … Yours, according to Columbia Records:
Disc One: “Hello,” “Halo,” “Irreplaceable,” “Sweet Dream Medley,” “If I Were a Boy,” “Scared of Lonely,” “That’s Why You’re Beautiful,” “Satellites,” “Resentment,” “Déjà Vu Jazz Medley/Déjà Vu”
Disc Two: “I Wanna Be Where You Are,” “Destiny’s Child Medley,” “Work It Out,” ” ’03 Bonnie & Clyde,” “Crazy in Love,” “Naughty Girl,” “Get Me Bodied,” “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” “Finale”
