Beyoncé has unveiled a brand new single called "Formation" - her first new music since 2014.

This is the first new noise from Bey since the deluxe edition of BEYONCÉ, and arrives ahead of her rumoured appearance at tonight's Super Bowl 50 half-time show (which is headlined by Coldplay).

The song is a Tidal exclusive, but you can download it for free and the video is also up on YouTube.

"Formation" is produced by Mike Will Made-It and is co-written with Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee; it samples New Orleans' bounce pioneer Big Freedia.

Watch the video for "Formation" below.
