Beyonce has dropped a surprise forty track companion album of her Homecoming 2018 Coachella performance to go with an upcoming Netflix documentary with the same title.
The album was released in the early hours of today across all major streaming platforms, including Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play. The documentary features rehearsal footage and clips from backstage before the historical 2018 event which became known as “Beychella.”
The complimentary album includes 38 tracks from the 2018 performance and two bonus tracks: “I Been On” and “Before I Let Go,” which was originally performed by Frankie Beverly and Maze, a 1970s soul band.
No stranger to surprise releases, Beyonce first executed the tactic for her 2013 album “Lemonade.” The release of the “Homecoming” album and documentary comes ahead of Coachella’s second weekend.
