Produced by Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Dave Jordan, the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack will be released under the labels Roc Nation Records, Def Jam Recordings and Hollywood Records.
Göransson, who composed and produced the original songs on the album, says he and Coogler intended to create a project closely related to the film.
“Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice,” he says via a press release. “If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story. Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever — Music From and Inspired By is now available for presave/preorder. The movie premieres November 11 in U.S. theaters.
