“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. “The audience will hear over 250 musicians, two orchestras, two choirs, and over 40 vocalists throughout the film,” Göransson said in a statement. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits U.S. theatres on Friday, November 11. It’s the sequel to Ryan Coogler’s Academy Award-nominated movie Black Panther. Listen to the tracks here;
