Beyonce has unveiled a surprise live album of her historic 2018 Coachella performance on the same day as a documentary about the headlining slot has been released.

The singing superstar announced the news by tweeting a picture of the album cover and writing simply: "#HOMECOMING out now."

The live album of her festival performances includes 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.

Beyonce made history at 2018's Coachella in California as the first black woman to headline the music and arts festival.

She shared the stage with 100 dancers and a brass marching band for the expertly choreographed set.
