BY Sarah MurphyPublished Jun 24, 2019

The 2019 live-action remake of The Lion King is less than a month away from release, and the film's accompanying soundtrack has finally been announced.
As expected, it features Beyoncé and Donald Glover's rendition of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," as well as score pieces by Hans Zimmer.
There's additional production by Pharrell Williams on "I Just Can't Wait to be King," "Hakuna Matata," "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight."
Meanwhile, John Oliver performs on "I Just Can't Wait to Be King," Chiwetel Ejiofor performs Scar's spotlight moment "Be Prepared" and Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen chime in on hits like "Hakuna Matata," "The Lion Sleeps" tonight and the "Can You Feel the Love Tonight."
There's even a brand new song by Elton John titled "Never Too Late," which didn't appear in the 1994 animated version of the film.
See the full tracklisting (other than a mysteriously to be announced fourteenth track), and revisit a snippet of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" below.

The Lion King Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will arrive digitally on July 11 and physically on July 19 via Walt Disney Records.
Jon Favreau's The Lion King film, meanwhile, is also out July 19.
