Your favorite Disney songs from classics such as Aladdin, The Lion King, Cinderella and Frozen are getting new makeovers from some of music's biggest hitmakers. Following the D23 conference this weekend, today (Aug. 17), Disney and Verve Records announced the We Love Disney compilation album, featuring new covers from the likes of Ariana Grande, Ne-Yo, Kacey Musgraves, Fall Out Boy and more.
We Love Disney takes Disney hits of yore and turns them in to modern new singles, and the 15-track album will be released on Oct. 30, according to a press release. The new album features a wide range of artists from country (Musgraves, Rascal Flatts) to rock (Fall Out Boy) to R&B (Jason Derulo, Ne-Yo) and pop (Tori Kelly, Jessie J).
"In choosing the artists to appear on We Love Disney, we tried to cover the whole spectrum," Verve Music Group chairman David Foster said in a statement. "I wanted great singers. That's always been my mandate. We set the bar high and everyone who came in absolutely killed it. The vocals on this album are spectacular."
Songs such as "Part of Your World" (The Little Mermaid), "Zero to Hero" (Hercules) and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" (The Lion King) made the cut in the varied styles. The first taste of We Love Disney has already arrived in the form of Ne-Yo's take on "Friend Like Me" from Aladdin.
