Fans have already gotten a taste of the music that will be featured in Marvel’s next Black Panther installment. But before they book their return trips to Wakanda, viewers can sample the entire lineup of tracks inspired by the long-awaited sequel. On Friday, November 4, Marvel will release Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By on all major streaming platforms. And ahead of its release, the studio (via Marvel.com) has also shared the album’s complete list of songs.
Roc Nation Records, Def Jam Recordings, and Hollywood Records are all teaming up to release the soundtrack, which was produced by director Ryan Coogler, composer Ludwig Göransson, Def Jam chief creative officer Archie Davis, and Dave Jordan. The album features 19 songs by international artists (including those hailing from Nigeria, Lagos, and Mexico) to reflect the film’s varied cultural influences. Göransson also wanted to ensure that the soundtrack and his own score album (due November 11) felt as seamless as possible.

“Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice,” said Göransson in a statement. “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.”
Last week, Rihanna premiered her own contribution to the soundtrack, “Lift Me Up,” which serves as the lead single. Tems’ cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry” from Wakanda Forever’s teaser trailer was also released earlier this year. Right now, listeners can pre-save the album on their streaming service of choice. But for those who prefer physical media, pre-orders are currently live for both CD and vinyl editions. The CD version will be released on November 18, while the vinyl pressing doesn’t ship out until February 3, 2023. You can view the full tracklist for the album below.
