Alan Menken reveals three new songs written for 'Beauty and the Beast'

Composer Alan Menken appeared at the Lincoln Center for a new "Artist to Artist" series last night to discuss his amazing career. Towards the end of the conversation (around the 53:00 mark), Menken discussed his current projects, including the live-action ‪Beauty and the Beast. According to Menken, he and Tim Rice wrote three new songs for the film, including "Forever More" and "Days in the Sun." The first is sung by the Beast and Menken described the second as a lullaby sung by the enchanted objects. While many fans speculated songs from the Broadway production, specifically "Home" and "If I Can't Love Her," would be featured, Menken confirmed no songs from the stage show will be part of the live-action film.

Although the Beauty and the Beast news is the main focus here, the entire video is definitely worth watching if you are a fan of Menken's work. If you are a fan of his work with Disney, that part of the conversation begins at the 30:00 mark with The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
