New York, NY (Top40 Charts) As Top40-Charts.com announced yesterday, Beyonce will release a new album titled, "The Lion King: The Gift" which will feature an array of songs inspired by the film, performed by global artists. Now, the first original single from the album, titled "Spirit" has been released.
Spirit is written and performed by Beyonce, and co-written by IIya Salmanzadeh and Timothy McKenzie.

The singer discussed the project in a new statement, saying, "This is sonic cinema...This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn't one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat."

She continued, "I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline. Each song was written to reflect the film's storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me."
The full album will be released in conjunction with the film's opening on July 19. The film's official soundtrack will be released by Walt Disney Records on July 11.
