Florence + The Machine‘s new original song, “Call Me Cruella,” is set to be featured in Disney’s upcoming live-action film Cruella, scheduled to release on May 28.
According to an announcement, the song will be featured in the film as well as on the original motion picture soundtrack and the original score album composed by Nicholas Britell, both due out on Walt Disney Records on May 21.
“Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs,” singer Florence Welch said in the announcement. “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 added, “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 ’60s and ’70s 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.”
The Craig Gillespie-directed Cruella, which is about the early days of one of cinemas most fashionably ferocious villains, Cruella de Vil, stars Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, and others.
