Here’s a look at the soundtrack cover for Tyler Perry’s ‘For Colored Girls,’ which will be released by Atlantic Records on Nov. 2.

 

The soundtrack features all new and unreleased music from artists such as Nina Simone, Gladys Knight, Leona Lewis, Estelle, Laura Izibor, Macy Gray, Janelle Monae and Lalah Hathaway.

 

The soundtrack sets the many stories of struggle told within the film’s chore poem to music that reflects women’s ongoing battle with love, abandonment and self-awareness.
