Beyoncé Releases Her Single "Spirit" From THE LION KING Soundtrack; Will Curate A Companion Album For The Film

We all knew Beyoncé would perform iconic songs like "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," but now the Grammy-winning singer has released her new single "Spirit" from the official soundtrack for The Lion King.

When Beyoncé was first cast in the upcoming Disney remake, many fans expected the award-winning singer/songwriter to create some new music for the film, and now Queen Bey has released her original single from The Lion King soundtrack.

According to an official statement, the track titled “Spirit," which was written by IIya Salmanzadeh, Timothy McKenzie and Beyoncé herself, will appear “during a pivotal scene” featuring the character Nala.

Along with the release of this new song, it was also announced that the Grammy winner will produce and curate the movie’s companion album, The Lion King: The Gift. While there aren't a lot of details on who will appear on this album, it will reportedly feature some of Beyoncé's favorite artists and "important African artists of the day."

The Lion King is set to roar into theaters on July 18, 2019, and The Gift will be released on July 19.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
