Beyoncé has shared the tracklist for her forthcoming album, Act II: Cowboy Carter.

Cowboy Carter arrives on Friday but fans got a sneak peek on the superstar’s Instagram account, when she shared an image that appears to include the titles of her songs: from the previously released Texas Hold ‘Em and 16 Carriages, now including American Requiem, Blackbird, Protector, My Rose, Bodyguard, Daughter, Spaghetti, Alligator Tears, Smoke Hour II, Just For Fun, II Most Wanted, Levi’s Jeans, Flamenco, Ya Ya, Oh Louisiana, Desert Eagle, Riverdance, II Hands II Heaven, Tyrant, Sweet Honey Buckin’ and Amen.

One song appears to be called The Linda Martell Show, a reference to the groundbreaking country performer who became the first black woman to play at the Grand Ole Opry.

There is also mention of Dolly P – likely to be a reference to Dolly Parton – and a track titled Jolene, a reference to one of Parton’s best-known songs.

Earlier this month, in an interview with Knox News celebrating the seasonal opening of her amusement park Dollywood, Parton said she thinks Beyonce has recorded a cover of her 1973 hit.

“Well, I think she has,” she said.

“I think she’s recorded Jolene and I think it’s probably gonna be on her country album, which I’m very excited about that.”

The track list also mentions Smoke Hour Willie Nelson, but it is not immediately clear if Nelson is involved with the project.
