The Queen & Slim soundtrack is out today, including the recently released Megan Thee Stallion and Vince Staples songs, and the first Ms. Lauryn Hill song in five years. It’s called “Guarding The Gates,” and it’s a hypnotic, six-minute song that sees Lauryn dabbling in psychedelic soul. She’s still got it — listen below.

Queen & Slim also features a score by Blood Orange. It was directed by Melina Matsoukas, written by Lena Waithe, and stars Daniel Kaluuya as Slim, Jodie Turner-Smith as Queen, Chloë Sevigny, Flea, Sturgill Simpson, and more. It hits theaters on November 27.

As mentioned, Lauryn plays a NYC show on February 22 at United Palace (tickets).
