Tracklist for Beyonce’s ‘Lion King: The Gift’ Album Revealed

Beyonce is set to treat fans to a new collaborated and curated album on Friday, July 19 with The Lion King: The Gift. Beyonce produced the album that will feature 14 tracks and release on the same day that the CGI-version of The Lion King hits theaters worldwide.

Plenty of top-tier artists will be included in the project with features from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, 070 Shake, JAY-Z, Childish Gambino, and, of course, Blue Ivy.

She previously released the single “Spirit” which will be on the album.

“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said about the track, via Yahoo. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip-hop, and Afro Beat.

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

The album cover has also reportedly been leaked online.
