In a statement, Beyoncé said, "This is sonic cinema".

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new TV spot for their upcoming live-action adaptation of The Lion King, revealing a short preview of Simba and Scar's epic showdown while highlighting Scar's envy and greed for the throne. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip-hop and Afrobeat.

The track will also feature on a multi-artist soundtrack album which has been co-produced by the singer.

There's always pressure associated with any film, but when it comes to the new live-action/CGI version of The Lion King, you can double the levels. He added that Beyoncé made the song with Lebo M. and Hans Zimmer.

"They were all collaborating with her and helping to bring this new piece of music into a film where there's already a very established musical personality to the piece", The Jungle Book director continued.

With all of those countless of jewels all over her, it is safe to say that Beyonce was shining, perhaps even more than usual, and that says a lot!

Well, it looks like The Lion King is going to be everything we've been hoping for and more, both visually stunning and absolutely spellbinding. With orchestral acoustics and choir-tipped choruses and some Afrobeat, the song, Spirit, is certainly a good one! It will be released digitally July 11, with the physical album coming July 19.
