Part of what sometimes makes a film great and or memorable is its soundtrack. Sometimes they have original music and other times they borrow from the past (I am looking at you Guardians of the Galaxy). At the end of this month, the highly anticipated Disney Pictures film Cruella is ready to debut in theaters and on Disney+ Premiere. But a week before the release on May 21st, Disney will release the official Cruella Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. This will feature songs in the film as well as the original score for the film by Oscar-nominated composer Nicolas Britell.
One of those new songs is titled, Call Me Cruella. This is performed by the multi-platinum and global award-winning artist, Florence + The Machine. You can check out a sneak peek of the song in this clip down below!
Talking about the Call Me Cruella collaboration, Florence said, “Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs. And the villains often got the best numbers. So to help create and perform a song for ‘Cruella’ is the fulfillment of a long-held childhood dream. I’m so grateful to Nicholas Britell and Disney for allowing me so much creative freedom, and for trusting me with Cruella’s beautiful madness.”
Britell also commented about the collaboration on the song and score. “I am a massive fan of Florence’s, so it was a true joy to collaborate with her on Call me Cruella. With both this song and the Cruella score itself, the goal was to really embrace the raw rock aesthetic of 60’s and 70’s London. We recorded everything using all vintage gear and analog tape at Abbey Road and AIR Studios in London. Melding orchestral elements with electric guitars and basses, organs, keyboards, and drums.”
