The post Minions: The Rise of Gru Soundtrack features Phoebe Bridgers, Tame Impala, Diana Ross, Thundercat and more appeared first on Consequence.
A who’s who of indie rock, pop, hip-hop and R&B talent came together for the soundtrack of Minions: The Rise of Gru. Produced by Jack Antonoff, the OST sees artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Thundercat, St. Vincent, Brittany Howard, BROCKHAMPTON, Kali Uchis, Tierra Whack, Caroline Polachek and Weyes Blood reimagine some of the biggest funk, pop and soul hits of the years 1970 – the time in which the new film takes place.
Bridgers, for example, reimagines the Carpenters’ 1972 single “Goodbye to Love,” while St. Vincent’s Annie Clark offers her version of Lipps Inc.’s “Funkytown.” Polachek covers Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang,” the chains BROCKHAMPTON Kool & The Gang with “Hollywood Swinging”, and Antonoff’s own Bleachers deliver their version of John Lennon’s “Instant Karma”.
The first single, however, is an entirely new song: a collaboration between the legendary Diana Ross and Tame Impala called “Turn Up the Sunshine”. The song will be released on May 20, with the full soundtrack on July 1 via Decca Records (pre-orders are on the way). Check out the artwork and track listing for the soundtrack below.
