Fresh off its debut on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, the song serves as a very cool update of Oran "Juice" Jones' '80s classic hit, "The Rain," which reportedly pops off in the movie during an eerie scene featuring Will Smith's Deadshot character. The swinging keys definitely feel like an ode to late night revelry, which we're sure we can expect from the motley crew of dangerous squad members in the movie.
"I just couldn't believe that Dan, like, was just so cool and was like, 'Do you mind singing this Oran 'Juice' Jones song that you've never heard?" Ronson told Zane Lowe. "When I finally got it back, I was like, 'this is cool." Ronson and Auerbach both loved Bronson's voice and had him come on to add his crooning vocals to the track.
The release follows an already impressive string of tracks we've heard from the new soundtrack including Skrillex and Rick Ross' maniacal joint "Purple Lamborghini," Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign's "Sucker for Pain," and Kehlani's raw and haunting contribution, "Gangsta," which arrived earlier this week.
Listen to "Standing in the Rain" below and look for the Suicide Squad soundtrack to arrive the same day as the movie this Friday, Aug. 5.
