Beyoncé drops surprise album as Homecoming concert film debuts

Parkwood Entertainment

Netflix debuted Beyonce's HOMECOMING documentary earlier today but the iconic singer also unexpectedly dropped an accompanying album, HOMECOMING: THE LIVE ALBUM which included unreleased music.

Previously unannounced, the companion album presents her pair of Coachella performances as a 40-track release. She was the festival's first black woman to headline, and the career-spanning set, which featured 60+ people on stage as a marching band and dancers, decked out in fictional Beyoncé university wear, was a schooling and celebration of blackness. After months of teases on social media, it became clear that the "Homecoming" the singer was referring to in posts referred to a Netflix concert special of the same name, documenting her acclaimed performance at Coachella past year. On top of that, the Homecoming: The Live Album also comes with two new bonus tracks.

BBC entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson noted that there was "very little documentary content, but as a concert film it's up there with Talking Heads" Stop Making Sense and Prince's Sign "O' The Times".

"The "intimate and 'candid" moments touted by Netflix are brief in comparison", they add, "appearing between long, uninterrupted musical segments from the show".

Chelsea condemns 'abhorrent' racism against Salah, ban 3 fans
I can tell all the fans to ignore it - it's nothing to do with us. "We should not see it as a Chelsea thing or a Liverpool thing. We encourage supporters to report any incidents as they happen to stewards or via our matchday alert service".

Given how vigilantly footage from the performance itself was wiped from YouTube post Coachella's live stream, Homecoming serves as the first proper chance to experience the entire show in HD.

Fans were similarly enthusiastic, with A Wrinkle In Time director Ava DuVernay writing on Twitter: "Gah!" So many moves to try in one's mirror.

"I can watch it on repeat and never, ever get exhausted".
