Beyoncé's big boxset is only a few days away of release, but why wait? There are only two new tracks featured in Beyoncé Platinum Edition, and you can listen to them now for free.

Here's the first track, "Ring Off," the slower and more laid-back of the two (presumably about the the divorce of her parents):

And here's "7/11," which has no apparent relation to the convenience retailer with over 54,200 locations worldwide. Clap, clap, clap:

Look, I'm a huge fan of Beyoncé, but in comparison to her latest album, it doesn't quite hit the same highs. The upcoming box set is really a collection of everything she's created over the past 12 months, from the album and videos through to her concert, plus these two tracks and a quartet of remixes (the already-released "Flawless" with Nicki Minaj and "Drunk in Love" with Kanye West, "Blow" with Pharrell, and "Standing on the Sun" with Mr. Vegas). So if you're a big enough fan, get ready for Pharrell, I guess?

Who knows, maybe she'll release another record-breaking surprise album next month. It's happened before.
