Disney has unveiled the tracklist for its star-studded Lion King soundtrack. Beyoncé and Childish Gambino, who play Nala and Simba in the live action remake, have connected for a rendition of “Can You Feel The Love Tonight,” which was previously teased in the upcoming film’s trailer.

The soundtrack features new recordings of nostalgic classics from the original 1994 animated version, which was written by Elton John and Tim Rice and composed by Hans Zimmer. Pharrell handles production on “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” “Hakuna Matata,” “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and “Mbube.”
