MUSIC NEWS: grandson & Jessie Reyez Release ‘Rain’ Taken From ‘The Suicide Squad’ Soundtrack
grandson and Jessie Reyez have teamed up to release new single Rain, the track is taken from The Suicide Squad film soundtrack.
“‘Rain’ is the theme song for making sense of personal tragedy. Through this track, I hope others find reassurance that whatever difficulty they’re going through leads to a broader, fuller perspective on life’s beauty somewhere down the road,” comments grandson.
He continues: “I found James Gunn as a mentor and friend during the pandemic, and we began sharing our work as I finished my album and he finished his movie. When he heard ‘Rain’ it was clear that it spoke to him. I had been a fan of Jessie for years through mutual collaborators in the Toronto/LA scene, and knew she would resonate as well and offer her own unique contribution to bring this one to the finish line.”
Jessie Reyez adds: “I respect grandson as an artist so of course I was really excited to work with him; when he called me up to bat to feature on “Rain”, it was a no-brainer. I’m also a fan of James Gunn and his work, so to be able to contribute a small part of my creativity to the world of Suicide Squad is an honour”
The pair also have individual songs in the superhero, action-adventure film from James Gunn which is set for release in the UK on 30th July 2021. Keep your eyes peeled for the official video for the track, which will see the pair embracing their inner super-villains. But for now, check out the film trailer below!
