The soundtrack will feature a variety of covers by the cast, including versions of Prince’s ‘Let’s Go Crazy’, The Weeknd’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, Coldplay’s ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ and fellow U2 classic ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’.
Johansson is also set to cover ‘Heads Will Roll’ by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in the sequel.
Johansson has released a few albums over the years, including 2008’s ‘Anywhere I Lay My Head’ which featured covers of Tom Waits‘ songs.
Sing 2 is set to be released in UK cinemas January 28, 2022.
