Just weeks before the film’s release, Walt Disney Records is set to release the digital version of the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” directed by Ava DuVernay.

The soundtrack, which is produced by DuVernay features the end-credit song “I Believe” performed by Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling artists DJ Khaled featuring Demi Lovato and also includes two versions of “Flower of the Universe” performed by Sade, one of which is a remix by No I.D.

Other artists who feature on the soundtrack include Australian singer-songwriter Sia who performs “Magic,” Kehlani and the sisters Chloe x Halle who made a cameo in Beyonce’s “Lemonade” visual album.

“The “A Wrinkle in Time” score is composed, conducted and produced by German-born composer Ramin Djawadi who has scored over 100 projects including blockbuster films such as “Pacific Rim,” “Iron Man” and “Clash of the Titans” and celebrated television scores including “Game of Thrones,” “Westworld,” “Prison Break” and “The Strain.”

Speaking about the artists and composer, DuVernay said: “Each song on the ‘Wrinkle in Time’ soundtrack was crafted with great care in close collaboration with the artists. My creative partnership with Sade on ‘Flower of the Universe’ was so connected that I reverse engineered the usual process and used her lyrics as actual dialogue within the film. I truly loved working with DJ Khaled who jumped into this project with open arms and an open heart, along with the great Demi Lovato. Sia, Kehlani and Chloe x Halle beautifully embraced the visuals of the film to create distinct songs that expand and elevate Meg’s heroic journey. And working with Ramin Djawadi was a dream come true as I have been a long-time admirer of his stellar work. His musical compositions for the film are perfectly otherworldly.”

The “A Wrinkle in Time” original motion picture soundtrack will be available at digital retail and streaming services on March 9.  The physical version will be available following the film’s release on March 30.
