The Lion King 2019 Movie Soundtrack

The Lion King Soundtrack Has All the Classic Hits (and a New Song by Elton John!)

THE LION KING - Featuring the voices of John Oliver as Zazu, and JD McCrary as Young Simba, Disney's

Let's be honest: the best part of any classic Disney film is the music. That's why we're SO ready for the soundtrack of the live-action reboot of The Lion King, especially after all the sneak peeks we've gotten of the cast singing our favourite tunes.

The soundtrack features new recordings of the original songs, which will include African vocal and choir arrangements created by South African producer Lebo M. Not only does the star-studded — and ridiculously talented — cast bring a unique spin to all the classics, but dynamic duo Elton John and Tim Rice have also written a new song for the film that we cannot wait to hear! Check out the tracklist for the soundtrack ahead and get ready to listen to the full playlist when the album drops along with the movie on July 19.
