In the last two days, we have gotten two tracks from the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtracks. Yesterday morning, one of the tracks from the album, “It’s On Again” was released. The song which featured Alicia Keys, Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar and Hans Zimmer.
Yep. You read that right. The song features Lamar rapping and Keys singing over her piano playing and then it goes to Zimmer and his famous orchestra while at the same time you can hear the disco/hip-hop influence in the song.
Today, another song from the motion picture that is slated to hit theaters next month was released. “Here” once again features the work of Pharrell who instead of producing the track takes a front seat and sings and Zimmer. Instead of sticking to the hyper-disco dance sound that the first track had, “Here” is more of a ballad and featured former Smith’s guitarist Johnny Marr.
Listen to the track here.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Soundtrack will be released on April 22 through Columbia Records and will feature several other artists than just Pharrell; the Neighbourhood, LIZ, and Phosphorescent will also be contributing to the soundtrack. As for the film, it is scheduled to be released on May 2.
