This 20th anniversary rerelease of the soundtrack to The Lion King is part of a series celebrating the anniversaries of Disney’s most cherished and classic films. Elton John, Tim Rice and composer Hans Zimmer created a sweeping musical landscape to accompany the lush animation and all three earned Academy Awards along the way. The album went to number one in the US and several other countries and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, one of the best-selling soundtracks in history. This reissue includes, for the first time, Zimmer's evocative complete score and previously-unreleased demo recordings.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
