Marvel has delivered the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Prologue EP shortly after releasing the trailer of the highly-anticipated sequel at Comic-Con 2022.

Clocking in at under 10 minutes, the three-track project is produced by Ludwig Göransson and features Tems‘ rendition of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “No Woman No Cry”,” Amaarae’s “A Body, A Coffin” and Santa Fe Klan’s “Soy.” The composer called the EP “an aural first glimpse of Wakanda Forever” in a statement, adding:

“The sound world for the film began with extended trips to Mexico and Nigeria. We spent our days working with traditional musicians who educated us about the cultural, social and historical contexts of their music. We built a catalogue of instrumental and vocal recordings with them that explored both traditional and non-traditional uses of their musical material. During the nights on these trips, we had recording sessions with contemporary artists who were akin to the characters and thematic material explored in the film.

Using the script as a blueprint, along with the recordings from the traditional musicians, we began to build a musical vocabulary for the characters, storylines and cultures. The instrumental score and soundtrack for Wakanda Forever both organically grew from these sessions and workshops. They are conceived together as a singular entity to create an immersive and enveloping sound world for the film.”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will star Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Tenoch Huerta, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli. This will mark the first Black Panther film since the death of lead actor Chadwick Boseman.

Stream the EP on Spotify and Apple Music. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premieres November 11.
