    Why is Disney taking so long to post the tracklist for this album? Or the details of it? From what I’ve read on the first reviews, Debney wrote a large, symphonic score for this film. Anyway, the album comes out on April 15, so it can’t take much longer

      It should be out soon. I knew they wouldn’t release it until right up till the release day as the music is a huge part of the film’s appeal and I think their trying to keep it all a secret as long as possible. I can tell you that three classic songs from the original 1967 Jungle Book have been newly recorded by select cast members. All should be on the disc. They are: The Bare Necessities (performed by Bill Murray and Neel Sethi), I Wan’na Be Like You 2016 (performed by Christopher Walken) and Trust In Me (performed by Scarlett Johansson).
