The 'Best Thing I Never Had' singer says she expects to release new music before the end of 2012.

Beyonce has confirmed she is likely to head back out on tour with new music at some point over the next year.

The ‘Love On Top’ singer is currently expecting with her first child with husband Jay-Z, but admits she is looking forward to taking a new show on the road in 2012.

“Absolutely. I’ll be back next year,” Beyonce revealed during a Brazilian New Years special, when asked whether she will return to the country any time soon.

“Hopefully. It’ll probably be a different show by next year,” she explained. “More music, and, a different show.”

It is unknown whether the ‘Countdown’ singer plans to take her recent ‘4’ album on tour or simply to begin work on her fifth studio record.

Despite widespread Twitter reports last week that Beyonce has already given birth, the singer's sister Solange Knowles has confirmed she has yet to become a mother.
