By CLTure News (Updated)

Kendrick Lamar and Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith of TDE are set to curate and produce “Black Panther: The Album” from the highly anticipated Marvel Studios film Black Panther scheduled to be released on February 16. The album will feature music inspired by Marvel Studios’ Black Panther film with the lead single, “All The Stars,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and SZA, produced by Sounwave just released.

Directed by filmmaker Ryan Coogler and starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira, Black Panther has been preparing for a huge nationwide release.

Lamar and Tiffith will work with Coogler directly in the creation of music specific to the needs of the film. This will mark the first time that Lamar will write, produce, perform and curate for a major motion picture and the first time in Marvel Cinematic Universe history they will integrate multiple original recordings created specifically for the film.

Lamar was hand-picked by Coogler for this epic collaboration. “I am honored to be working with such an incredible artist whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those we explore in the film. I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store,” said Coogler.

Lamar added in the press release sent this morning by Interscope Records, “Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.”

Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith adds: “Working on such a powerful movie is a great opportunity. We’re always working on new goals at TDE, so teaming up with Disney, Marvel Studios and the Black Panther film makes perfect sense.”

With a soundtrack and trailer that already includes Run The Jewels, Black Panther is not only one of the most anticipated films of 2018, but now, one of the most anticipated albums.
