Beyoncé’s excellent visual album Lemonade from last year is now available to pre-order as a box set, featuring a double vinyl LP, collector’s edition coffee table book, audio and visual album downloads, and more. Titled How To Make Lemonade, the $300 box set “gives unprecedented insight into the making of multiple award-winning Lemonade.”
The hardcover book features over 600 pages of unseen photos that document the creative process behind the record — visual and audio — and its many sources of inspiration. The photos also traverse “themes behind some of the film’s most provocative and cryptic moments.” Beyoncé’s personal writing is entwined throughout the book, as well as additional text offerings from Dr. Michael Eric Dyson with poet Warsan Shire. A short video teaser posted by Columbia Records shows previews of the eclectic collection of unique photos with three-dimensional views of the album on vinyl. The record itself is lemon yellow.

Lemonade was released just over a year ago to critical acclaim and mainstream success. The album made history as Beyoncé became the first solo artist to have their first six albums hit number one and debut at number one. Consequently, Lemonade was nominated for nine Grammys, winning Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. It lost Album of the Year to Adele’s 25. Adele then dedicated the award to Beyoncé in a teary acceptance speech.
Earlier this year Beyoncé announced she was pregnant with twins, which set the internet on fire with well-wishes for Queen Bey (and plenty of memes, of course.) Her Coachella performance was rescheduled as a result of her pregnancy. In the meantime, you can pre-order the How To Make Lemonade box set on Beyoncé’s website or on Amazon. And if you don’t want to shell out the $300 for all the extra goodies, you can order the vinyl on its own here. Pre-orders will be shipped this summer.
