Beyonce will "obviously" put out a new album in 2014, says the chairman of her record label.

While there is still no release date for a full album, Columbia Records chairman Rob Stringer revealed that the singer will release an LP in the New Year.

When asked by Hits Daily Double what he is most excited about in 2014, Stringer replied: "At the beginning of next year we’ve got Broken Bells and Bruce Springsteen. Then we’ve got Lea Michele from Glee coming, and we’ve got Foster The People up next. Then we’ve got Pharrell and Solange, and obviously, at some point Beyoncé will put a record out, and when she does it will be monumental. So we’re in really, really good shape."

Beyoncé's last solo album, '4', was released in 2011. Pharrell Williams recently said that he's working on Beyoncé's new album and that it is almost finished. The producer and Daft Punk collaborator says the singer's new material is "crazy" but added that she won't put out any music until she is absolutely happy with it.

Back in June, R&B singer Ne-Yo, who has also worked on Beyoncé's new material, said that fans will have to be "patient" for the album to arrive as the singer was still "trying to figure out" what they want from the record.

Beyoncé has unveiled a handful of new songs in 2013, including the track 'Grown Woman', which was premiered via a Pepsi advert show during the half-time show of this year's Super Bowl, and 'Standing On The Sun', which she played in full for the first time at a gig in Belgium.

Last month (November 23), the ballad 'God Made You Beautiful' appeared online after being given away as an exclusive track given away to fans pre-ordering her 'Life is But a Dream' documentary.
