Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have released a surprise joint album.
The singer delighted fans by dropping a clip from a music video for one of her new tracks on her Instagram.
The 36-year-old’s nine-track album is called Everything Is Love.
The record is a collaboration with her husband Jay-Z, 48, and has been launched on his streaming service Tidal.
The clip for the new track called APES**T was viewed almost 2.3 million times within an hour of being uploaded.
The full music video, which is more than six minutes long, shows the power couple at the Louvre museum in Paris.
Published by Beyonce’s YouTube channel, the track’s artist is listed as The Carters – the couple’s family name.
The stylised video includes shots of them standing in front of the Mona Lisa painting while wearing pink and mint suits.
Another frame shows dancers in skin-coloured tights and crop-tops performing on steps as the pair look on dressed in white.
Dramatic shots of the museum’s historic artworks are shown throughout.
At other points, shots of people in less glamorous surroundings or doing everyday things such as hair styling are included.
The artwork for the album has also been released and is a frame from the video showing a woman standing over a man while she combs his hair. Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa painting hangs in the background of the picture.
The announcement came as the couple played their second night at the London Stadium as part of their On the Run II tour.
Speaking to the crowd on stage, Beyonce said: Thank you for being the most incredible audience in London. You give us so much love every time we come here.
Because we love you all so much we have something special for you. We want you guys to be the first to experience this new project.
The video was then played on the stage’s screens and ended with a black slate with the message ‘ALBUM OUT NOW’ written in white text across it.
