Thursday, Republic Records and Sony Pictures Entertainment shared the first single from the film's official soundtrack album, due Dec. 14. Stream Malone and Lee's "Sunflower" video above. The two previously linked for the Beerbongs & Bentleys cut "Spoil My Night."
The soundtrack is said to cover a variety of genres and has been curated by Republic and Sony to represent "what a teen like [lead character Miles Morales] is listening to across the country." Additional artists have not yet been announced. The soundtrack's release date coincides with the film's theatrical release. Spider-Verse voice talent includes Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Liev Schreiber, and more.
Last week, Malone carved out some time to take one of the late-night Jimmys to a mysterious nourishment provider he called "the Olive Garden." Malone considers the spot a can't-miss. "Oh yeah, everything from going platinum to going undefeated 20 and 0 in beer pong that night we stay up until 1 p.m. and hit Olive Garden and celebrate life," he said of his typical Olive Garden evening. This particular visit with a Jimmy included a sampling of the establishment's allegedly unlimited breadsticks, as well as their wine and chicken parmesan with rigatoni. Also, I'm hungry as hell right now.
Hopefully they'll be serving breadsticks, wine, and pasta at Malone's upcoming Posty Fest. The inaugural edition of Malone's festival hits the Dos Equis Pavillion in Dallas, Texas Oct. 28. What a great day that would be to consume some pasta.
