About a fresh take on music, Beyoncé said: This is a 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.”
Beyoncé also shared her views about the music album The Lion King: the Gift and revealed: “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.”
Spirit will appear on her forthcoming album, The Lion King: the Gift and it is all set to release on July 19. For updates from the musical world, stay tuned to SoundboxIndia.
