Florence + The Machine have/has/take-your-pick-on-the-band-slash-solo-artist-designation-here dropped a brand new track, ‘Call Me Cruella’.

An original song contributed to the soundtrack of forthcoming Disney film ‘Cruella’, it sees Florence Welch (for it is she, etc etc – Ed) working with Nicholas Britell, who composed the score for the movie.

“Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs,” Florence explains, “and the villains often got the best numbers. So to help create and perform a song for Cruella is the fulfillment of a long held childhood dream.”

“I am a massive fan of Florence’s,” Britell adds, “so it was a true joy to collaborate with her on Call me Cruella. With both this song and the Cruella score itself, the goal was to really embrace the raw rock aesthetic of 60’s and 70’s London. We recorded everything using all vintage gear and analog tape at Abbey Road and AIR Studios in London, melding orchestral elements with electric guitars and basses, organs, keyboards, and drums.”
