With a sneak peek of the brand new Disney film ‘Cruella’ landing earlier today, Florence + The Machine has announced that the brand new original song ‘Call Me Cruella’ will be featured in the film.
“Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs,” Florence says. “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.”
Composer Nicolas Britell adds, “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.”
