The soundtrack for Sing 2 will be in stores on December 17. This single from the movie will be released digitally on Wednesday. At this time we do not have any information on a physical release of the song. Entertainment Weekly have a longer piece on the new song. “but Clay really spoke to the singer, who channeled his feline side to pen original track “Your Song Saved My Life” for the character too. “The band recorded this amazing U2 song,” says the director. “It’s just full of so much emotion and heart and literally did exactly what he said in that first phone call. It just says, ‘Okay, here’s how we want your audience to feel as they leave the cinema.’” The article also mentions that U2 have loaned several of their songs to the film. We revealed last week, that Scarlett Johannson will sing once of those songs with Clay Calloway in the film.
The song was teased on social media last week, when U2 asked on social media “What song saved your life?”:
What song saved your life?— U2 (@U2) October 28, 2021
Many of the responses to that question were collected in a video and shared on U2’s accounts.
Last year for his 60th birthday, Bono shared a list of 60 songs that saved his life with fans. The list was posted to Rolling Stone and featured on U2.Com among other locations.
