As well as countless stunning movies, shorts and TV specials, Disney has always made magnificent music.

A total of 14 of the company's songs have won an Oscar, and they've featured massive artists like Phil Collins, Idina Menzel, Michael Bolton and Elton John.

But a new album from Walt Disney Records features some of its movie songs with a chillout twist.

Lofi Minnie: Focus is made up of ten Disney classics "reimagined as never before with a chill new vibe"

Songs like 'Hakuna Matata' from The Lion King and 'A Whole New World' from Aladdin have been reworked by different artists in the hip-hop, house and jazz-inspired lofi style.

Lofi music is usually instrumental, set at a tempo of 70-90 beats per minute to match the human heart.

It's said to be great for chilling out or helping you focus on what you're doing, hence: Lofi Minnie: Focus.

Lofi artists involved in the project include Purrple Cat, eevee and Jazzinuf, among others. The album is available to stream now.
