Beyonce drops surprise live album of 2018 Coachella performance
It accompanies a Netflix documentary about the same show.
Beyonce has released a surprise live album on the same day a documentary about her Coachella headlining show is released.
The singer announced the news by tweeting a picture of the album cover, writing only “#HOMECOMING out now” alongside a link to her website.
The album features live renditions of her hits including Crazy In Love, Formation, Sorry, Drunk In Love, Run The World (Girls) and Love On Top, as well as the Destiny’s Child tracks Say My Name, Soldier and Bug A Boo.
The album of her festival performance accompanies the Netflix documentary, also called Homecoming and released at the same time, which details the 2018 show in California with appearances from her sister, Solange, her husband, Jay-Z, and her former group, Destiny’s Child.
The highly-anticipated film presents behind-the-scenes footage and interviews from before, during and after the show.
The choreo. The dancers. The band. The precision. The dedication. The perseverance. The intentionality. The discipline. How can you not be inspired after seeing this film?— Netflix US (@netflix) April 17, 2019

Fans have reacted with enthusiasm about the documentary on Twitter, with A Wrinkle In Time director Ava DuVernay writing: “Gah! This has been my favorite thing for a whole year now.
“I can watch it on repeat and never, ever get tired. So much to see. So many moves to try in one’s mirror. If one were so inclined.”
