Beyonce has unexpectedly released her fifth album on iTunes overnight, with 14 new songs and 17 music videos.

The self-titled record is the follow-up to 2011’s 4, and features guest spots from her husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

“Surprise!” wrote the 32-year-old in a press release, adding she was “bored” of releasing music the traditional way.

The instantaneous release means “I am able to speak directly to my fans,” she continued.
