Alicia Keys And Kendrick Lamar Unite With Pharrell And Hans Zimmer In Music Video For “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”
Summer came early for comic book fans everywhere when Marvel Studios released, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4th! The summer of Marvel movies continues with next month’s release of a film connected to another famous Marvel franchise, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2! On April 2nd we were very excited to bring you the details about the soundtrack to Spidey’s new film, and premiere the Alicia Keys single from the compilation.
Well as the release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 gets closer we are now even more excited, as we get to share with you the first music video connected to the soundtrack. As you could have guessed, that video is for the single, “It’s On Again” by Alicia Keys featuring Kendrick Lamar. The Rich Lee directed clip teams Alicia with Kendrick Lamar, as well as Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams who had a hand in writing/producing the track. The foursome unite to help save New York City along side Spider-Man, who appears courtesy of some cleverly placed clips from the film.
“It’s On Again” was released on April 1st, and can be purchased when pre-ordering the entire soundtrack that will be released on April 22nd . The film’s epic score was composed by Hans Zimmer and The Magnificent Six, which features Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr (of The Smiths, Modest Mouse),Michael Einziger (of Incubus), Junkie XL, Andrew Kawczynski, and Steve Mazzaro. The soundtrack also features new songs exclusive to the film from Pharrell Williams, The Neighbourhood, LIZ, andAlvin Risk.
This soundtrack is one of two recent collaborations between Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. The two also collaborated on Pharrell’s second solo album, G.I.R.L. from earlier this year. Zimmer helped take the project’s sound to the next level when he helped provide the arrangements for the strings that are heard throughout the entire album. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released in theatres on May 2nd. If you are as excited as we are, maybe this music video will help give you your Spider-Man fix until then. If that is still not enough, we figured we would be nice and include the clip from the film that was shown during last weekend’s MTV Movie Awards. Check out the music video and clip below!
