After teasing the release as part of the film's trailer earlier this month, Florence + The Machine has now delivered the full version of her latest single 'Call Me Cruella'.
The new track leads the soundtrack for the forthcoming Disney film Cruella, starring Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, and will join the film's original score, created by Oscar nominated composer Nicholas Britell.
Speaking about the new offering, Florence Welch said, “Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs. 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.”
While composer 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 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."
