The Lion King will roar into theaters in just nine days — and now we’ve learned that a brand new album will be released the same day!


Disney has just announced that an all new-album titled “The Lion King: The Gift” will be released on July 19. The album will feature a number of global recording artists, and is “steeped in the sounds of Africa.” Superstar Beyonce Knowles-Carter, who voices Nala in the upcoming film, is curating and producing the album.
