Beyonce Drops New Song 'Before I Let Go' - Stream, Lyrics, & Download Here!

Beyonce, the queen of surprise and so much else, has again dropped a record with no warning: a live album to go with an upcoming Netflix documentary on her performance at Coachella previous year.

The live album features the full setlist from Beyoncé's iconic Coachella performance, including tracks like "Crazy in Love", "Formation", "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It) and "Drunk in Love". "Homecoming", as the special's name, makes sense, given it shares a name with Bey's scholarship program for students at HBCUs (Historically Black US Colleges and Universities). The former is a cover of a Frankie Beverly & Maze classic featured in the documentary's closing credits, while the latter is an updated version of a song that was uploaded to SoundCloud back in 2013; "Bow Down" was included on the singer's self-titled album that year.

"For some of us who were actually there at Coachella, there might've been a slight fear that we were overselling the show", said Variety Magazine's Chris Willman.

The New York Times described the film - which is nearly 150 minutes long - as consisting of footage "viewers have already seen (and, perhaps, seen again and again) this time through a greater variety of angles and Instagram-like filters".

While the trailer for the Homecoming film has been circulating on Youtube for the past week, plans to release the performance as an album were kept mum until Beyonce herself tweeted the link at midnight PST. This has been my favourite thing for a whole year now. So much to see.
