After being teased earlier this week, a reported collaboration between Diana Ross and the alternative-rock act Tame Impala has officially been announced.
The two artists will team up for a new song called “Turn Up the Sunshine,” which, as hypothesized, will appear on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Minions: The Rise of Gru, the latest installment in the Despicable Me animated franchise.
The soundtrack will be produced by Jack Antonoff, and will also feature contributions from a variety of contemporary artists, including St. Vincent, Phoebe Bridgers, Bleachers and Alabama Shakes‘ Brittany Howard. The ’70s-themed compilation consists mostly of covers, including St. Vincent putting a spin on the Lipps Inc. disco classic “Funkytown,” and Howard teaming up with Earth, Wind & Fire‘s Verdine White for a new version of EW&F’s “Shining Star.”
You’ll be able to hear the full soundtrack on July 1, the same day Minions: The Rise of Gru hits theaters.
