With premieres beginning to take place worldwide, it’s almost time for us all to enjoy the highly anticipated remake of The Lion King.

Just in case you weren’t quite feeling excited enough, earlier today global superstar Beyoncé, who voices Nala in the new movie, released a new song from the soundtrack called ‘Spirit’.

Not only will the track feature on the official soundtrack, but it also forms part of a new album called The Lion King: The Gift. Produced and curated by Beyoncé herself, the album will be released on July 17 and will feature global artists performing songs which are steeped in the sounds of Africa.

The first offering, ‘Spirit’, perfectly embraces everything we could want from Queen Bey and The Lion King. It’s empowering, uplifting and will leave you feeling like you can take on the world.

Take a listen below.
