Beyonce has released an extended version of her song “Spirit” that comes off the soundtrack for Disney’s The Lion King. The video joins the “Spirit” visuals as well as a video for the second song on the album, “Better.”
Talking about the new album, Beyonce had this to say:
“The soundtrack is a love letter to Africa and I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it,” Bey said of the album. “I wanted to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa. A lot of the drums, the chants, all of these incredible new sounds mixed with some of the producers from America, we’ve kind of created our own genre and I feel like the soundtrack becomes visual in your mind. It’s a soundscape. It’s more than just the music because each song tells the story of the film.”
