The first new piece of Beyoncé music in nearly a year is here. 

Bey is featured on Naughty Boy's new single, "Runnin' (Lose It All)," which was released Thursday (Sept. 17) with significant buildup, including a countdown on Twitter.

The minimalist power-ballad duet is the first piece of music released featuring Beyoncé since last November's "7/11" and "Ring Off" from the album Beyoncé: Platinum Edition. "Runnin' (Lose It All)" also features British singer Arrow Benjamin. 

On it, Beyoncé croons with an aching sentiment, "These four lonely walls have changed the way I feel/ The way I feel/ I'm standing still/ And nothing else matters now, you are not here/ So where are you?/ I've been calling you/ I'm missing you."
