Soundtrack produced by GRAMMY Award winning Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins
Republic Records and Focus Features announce the release of The High Note Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on May 29th. The soundtrack will arrive the same day as the film, which will be available on at home on demand.
Preceding the arrival of the album, the film’s first single “Love Myself” is performed by Emmy Nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning actress Tracee Ellis Ross, who stars in the film as recording artist “Grace Davis.” “Love Myself” is available via all digital service providers.
Written by Sarah Aarons [Alessia Cara, John Legend, Khalid] and Greg Kurstin [Paul McCartney, P!nk, Céline Dion], “Love Myself” is a pivotal song in the movie performed by Tracee Ellis Ross as “Grace Davis.” This notably marks the first time the actress has released a song, which highlights her dynamic voice as “Grace Davis” and sets the stage for both the record and the film.
Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins [Michael Jackson, Beyoncé], the 15 song Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features new recordings by cast members Ross and Kelvin Harrison, Jr.
Beyond “Love Myself,” Ross delivers stunning performances of “Bad Girl,” “Stop For A Minute,” “New To Me,” and a duet with Harrison, Jr. on “Like I Do.” Additionally, classics from Donny Hathaway, Maxine Brown, and Aretha Franklin as well as the single “Mind Over Matter” by Anthony Ramos round out the track listing.
