On July 9, 2019, it was revealed that Beyoncé produced and curated an album titled The Lion King: The Gift, which will feature new songs inspired by the film, as well as “Spirit” from the soundtrack.

Beyoncé called the album “sonic cinema” and said that the film “is a new experience of storytelling”, and that the album “is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat”.

Beyoncé also said that “[she] wanted to win an Oscar and put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline” and that the songs were inspired by the remake’s storyline, which “gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation”.

The songs were also produced by African producers, which Beyoncé said it was because “authenticity and heart were important to [her]”, since the film is set in Africa (wikipedia)
