Titled 'Sledgehammer', the track is due to premiere tomorrow (June 26)
Rihanna has released a teaser for ‘Sledgehammer’, her new single from the soundtrack to Star Trek Beyond.
“#SLEDGEHAMMER @StarTrekMovie fans, be up tomorrow by 8am EST for a special premiere!” she wrote on Twitter, suggesting the single and perhaps its video will premiere on Monday (June 27) at 8am EST (1pm GMT).
News of Rihanna’s Star Trek Beyond single broke on Friday (June 24) when Twitter account @PopCrave spotted a promo for the track on iTunes and shared a screen-grab with followers.
The film itself hits cinema screens on July 22. Idris Elba plays the main villain in the movie, joining franchise regulars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg, who has co-written its script.
Meanwhile, Rihanna is currently on the UK leg of her ‘Anti World Tour’ tonight, with stadium dates in London and Coventry completed, and stadium dates in Glasgow and Manchester remaining.
During her show in Dublin earlier this week, Rihanna was moved to tears as she performed on stage. She told the crowd later in their performance: “I only have ever in my life heard an audience of people scream so loud that they sound like one voice and that only happens in Ireland, in Dublin. Thank you so much.”
