After being announced back in the summer of 2018, the streaming service has now shared a video for ‘Volcano Man’, the first song to be taken from its soundtrack. The track is performed by Ferrell and singer My Marianne. Watch it below.

Though the film hasn’t yet got a release date, cast member Dan Stevens tweeted that the film would be “erupting soon” and some fans are speculating that it will arrive online this weekend to mark what would’ve been the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest.

Eurovision 2020 was cancelled for the first time in its 64 year history due to coronavirus and replaced by a virtual alternative last night (May 16).
