This Week’s New Releases: Beyoncé, Sum 41 And The Flaming Lips

There is a lot on offer this week, but the name on everyone’s lips is Beyoncé. Not content with just starring in the new live action version of the Disney film The Lion King, the superstar vocalist has produced and curated an album separate from the official soundtrack that will pay tribute to the film while bringing together contemporary artists with important African artists.
