Rina Sawayama Releases New Song “Eye For An Eye” from “John Wick: Chapter 4” Soundtrack
Japanese-British singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama joined in Keanu Reeves' upcoming film “John Wick: Chapter 4” , where she made a screen debut.
She played as Akira, a new ally alongside Keanu Reaves' iconic character.
On March 22nd, she released a new song “Eye For An Eye” from the soundtrack of the film.
The track was written by Brasko, Rina Sawayama and Tyler Bates. Produced by Tyler Bates, who also helmed the score for all four installments of the John Wick series alongside Joel J. Richard.
“It's an honor to work with my brother Joel Richard in creating the musical landscape for a decade of John Wick,” Tyler Bates said in a statement. “Thank you, Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves, for having us on board and making these films with such fire and passion!”
The film “John Wick: Chapter 4” was directed by Chad Stahelski, starring Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick (in one of his final roles), Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins, and Ian McShane.
Rina Sawayama said of her screen debut, “I actually got a call out of the blue from Chad Stahelski, the director. He said, 'I'm trying to find this role and I've seen your music videos, and I see that you act and I can see that you do dance and choreography and fight scenes … What are you doing for the next three months?'”
She told Shania Twain in Rolling Stone's Musicians on Musicians, “I don't feel grossed out at all looking at myself when I'm doing music videos. But in a movie, you're contributing to making a character, but also, it's someone else's vision.”
She continued, “In front of the director and producer, I was like, 'I'm so happy with my performance!' but inside, I was dying. I was like, “Oh, fuck. This movie probably cost over $100 million to make. I'm a newbie. I'm ruining it. Everyone else is an amazing actor.” It just completely sent me into a spiral. Now, I know why actors don't watch their movies.”
The film is scheduled to be released on March 24, 2023.
