Florence + The Machine Releases New Song “Call me Cruella” from Disney's Film “Cruella” Soundtrack
- British alt-rock band Florence + The Machine joined in Disney's film “Cruella” soundtrack.
The band unveiled anew song “Call me Cruella” from the soundtrack.
The band worked with American composer Nicholas Britell on the track. They recorded the song at Abbey Road and AIR Studios in London.
“Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs. And the villains often got the best numbers,” frontwoman Florence Welch said of the song in a statement. “So to help create and perform a song for Cruella is the fulfilment 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.”
Nicholas Britell said, “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.”
The film “Cruella” is based on the character Cruella de Vil, who is a fictional character in English author Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians.
The film is directed by Craig Gillespie, starring Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Mark Strong.
The film is scheduled to be released on May 28, 2021.
