Pharrel has unveiled another song “Running” as one of the original soundtrack for his upcoming movie Hidden Figures. The singer, who signed onto Hidden Figures as a producer and wrote several songs for the movie, one of which is “I See A Victory” featuring Kim Burrell teased the movie’s “lifting” soundtrack in an interview with USA TODAY.
“It’s an ambitious thing, but I’m excited for the opportunity,” he said. “We want people to leave (the theater) higher than the way they walked in.”
Williams also praised the movie’s diverse cast. “Hollywood is reflective of a lot of areas that are just antiquated in the views and the customs,” he continued. “I want this to push more than just the boundaries of Hollywood — I want this to push the boundaries (everywhere).”
Like what you hear? Williams is behind “the entire musical palette of the film,” said producer Donna Gigliotti, contributing songs that range from Southern spirituals to vintage girl-group harmonies.
