I guess by now we all know that Beyoncé loves a good surprise.

The superstar just dropped a 40-track live album of marching band awesomeness direct from Coachella to go with her Netflix film, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé.

Then Homecoming: The Live Album dropped on streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and Tidal shortly after midnight PT on Wednesday.

And for die-hard Beyoncé fans, there’s a brand new bonus track at the end of the album.

Beyoncé included a studio cover of the 1981 song “Before I Let Go” by Frankie Beverly and Maze, a song that Destiny’s Child previously covered (though never released) in 1997.

The song also appears in the closing credits of the Netflix film.

The film includes Beyoncé’s epic live performance as she became the first African-American woman to headline Coachella.

It also follows the rehearsals and preparation with a vast cast of dancers and musicians, not to mention the occasional cameo from former bandmates Destiny’s Child and royal consort Jay Z.

The concert film also features unseen footage of Bey and Jay’s children, including adorable giggling clips of their nearly two-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.

Alongside the trailer, Netflix wrote of the film: “An in-depth look at Beyoncé’s celebrated 2018 Coachella performance from creative concept to cultural movement.”
