Disney has shared the soundtrack for its reboot of The Lion King before the film's release on July 18. The album contains new versions of songs from the 1994 original like "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" and "Hakuna Matata," and features the vocal talents of Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala. There are original songs, too: Elton John, who won a Grammy for his work on the original film, returns with the song "Never Too Late" and Beyoncé has contributed "Spirit." It sounds exactly like you'd imagine a Beyoncé song recorded for The Lion King would while still being very good. Listen below on Apple Music.
