Entitled Lofi Minnie: Focus, the album takes iconic Disney songs like "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King and Aladdin's "A Whole New World" and warps them into soft bops perfect for chill sessions as the weather begins to warm up.

Popular lofi artists Purrple Cat, Epona and Eevee are among those to have contributed to the 10-song album - which is currently available to stream and includes tracks from movies like Toy Story and Moana.

What is lofi?

Lofi is a relatively new genre, having only really popped up in the last decade.

The style has its fingers in multiple music pies, drawing inspiration from hip hop, jazz, and house. The soft instrumentals and soothing tempo makes lofi perfect for background music during study or getting kids to chill out when they are pumped full of sugar.

In a public statement, Disney said: "Disney and Minnie Mouse are a natural fit with lofi, especially with Minnie's interests in creativity, music and wellness leaning into lofi's penchant for self-expression and its calming meditative properties.

"Minnie Mouse is one of Disney's most celebrated icons globally, so who better to represent an album full of Disney hits? We can't wait to give listeners the ability to peek into Minnie's world and have her accompany their daily tasks.

"What attracted us to lofi is the ability to reimagine our songs in a completely new way that combines the soothing benefits of lofi with the wonder and nostalgia that Disney has to offer."

They concluded by saying Minnie and the lofi genre are a "perfect match."
