Below, listen to the “neo-soul superhero anthem” as it’s being referred to, from Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar, produced by Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer, for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack, which was released today (the single radio edit).
The film, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stoneand Jamie Foxx will hit U.S. theaters on May 2.
The song, titled It’s On Again, will play during the film’s closing credits.
“I’m very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer,” said Keys in a statement when the track was initially announced. “This is the next chapter in the Spider-Man legacy and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story, and, most importantly, the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.”
Pharrell Williams chimed in with: “Hans has created an iconic score theme and it was exciting to collaborate with him again on this song. When I was making the song, I knew Alicia and Kendrick had to be on it. They take the song to a whole new level.”
It’s On Again will be available on iTunes tomorrow, April 1, while the entire soundtrack (featuring new material from Williams, the Neighbourhood, Alvin Risk and LIZ & Phosphorescent) is set for an April 22 release. T
