Listen to the New 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Prologue' EP

The 3-song EP includes new tracks from Amaarae, Tems and Santa Fe Klan.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever got its first teaser trailer over the weekend and is now scheduled to come out on November 11.

The new trailer featured clips of Nigeria's highly-buzzing Tems covering Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry," the lead track of a new 3-song EP, entirely produced by the film's composer Ludwig Göransson. The Marley cover features Tems' soaring voice doing a faithful rendition of the classic tune accompanied by a minimal-yet-cinematic arrangement of electric guitar, bass, keys and strings.

Amaarae appears on the new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Prologue EP with "A Body, A Coffin," a more modern tune that lives on a similar afro-futuristic sonic bed that we're used to hearing from the Ghanaian artist. The song features her signature high-pitched voice going in over lush production which includes afro-fusion influenced percussion, flutes and much more.

The last track on the EP comes from Mexican rapper Santa Fe Klan which sees him delivering bars in Spanish over acoustic guitars and 808 drums for a dark, trap-style number.
