How do I install clang 18 on Ubuntu?

software I need to use is requiring clang 18 to be installed on my computer:

em++: warning: LLVM version for clang executable "/usr/bin/clang" appears incorrect (seeing "14.0", expected "18") [-Wversion-check]

After little bit of searching I’ve learned I should use the command sudo apt install clang-18
Running that has given me E: Unable to locate package clang-18.

The software is requiring clang 18 but package manager can’t find it.
Do I need to include third party repository or something ? I’m on Ubuntu 22.04 .

Thank you for assistance.
