Curated and produced by Future
Epic Records and Sony Pictures Entertainment announce the Superfly Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, arriving in stores and at all digital platforms on Friday June 8th. The highly anticipated film, directed by Director X and starring Trevor Jackson, opens in theaters everywhere on Wednesday, June 13th.
Multi-platinum Atlanta hip-hop trailblazer and trendsetter Future not only serves as executive producer and curator of the album, but also produced the film alongside Joel Silver (The Matrix, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon).
To build a blockbuster soundtrack befitting of the source material, Future attracted and assembled an airtight collection of A-list superstars for 13 big screen-level anthems. Reflecting both the movie’s tone and the spirit of tomorrow’s rap, it carries on a musical legacy set by the original Superfly in 1972 on Curtis Mayfield’s legendary soundtrack.
Further opening the film’s world, Zane Lowe will exclusively premiere the hypnotic single “This Way” by Khalid X H.E.R. on Apple Music as his latest “World Record” June 5th at noon ET. This lush duet unites two of alternative R&B’s hottest voices in one unforgettable moment for the flick and the culture. The next instant grat, Future’s “Walk On Minks,” drops Wednesday June 6th. Produced by frequent collaborator Zaytoven, its airy keys underscore the hashtaggable club-ready chant “You can walk on minks” as it immediately captivates. Yung Bans turns up alongside Future for the bold and braggadocious “Bag” while “Money Train” rolls towards trap supremacy fueled by Gunna, Young Thug, and Future. It also boasts the previously released “No Shame,” which culminates on a seismic guitar solo.
“Future’s work on this album continues the remarkable legacy established by the original,” states Spring Aspers, Head of Sony Motion Pictures Music Group. “He creates a musical soundscape that not only perfectly complements and underscores the film, but brings to life a time and place in today’s Atlanta and a culture of trap music. In bringing together this incredible group of artists, Future has made an album as thrilling as the film.”
Additionally, the soundtrack will be available as a special limited-edition cassette at all Urban Outfitters locations on June 8th.
