The forthcoming Netflix film Don’t Look Up, out in select theaters on December 10th and on the streaming platform December 24th, is a comedy featuring an ensemble cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, and Cate Blanchett among others. Republic Records has also announced a December 10th release for the soundtrack to the film.
The soundtrack includes the track, “Just Look Up” featuring Ariana Grande and Kid Cudi, who both star in the film. The song was co-written by Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, award-winning composer Nicholas Britell and Oscar-nominated songwriter Taura Stinson. “It was a privilege to collaborate with Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, and Taura Stinson on our song ‘Just Look Up,’ a love song that transforms into a rallying cry, as well as with Justin Vernon on Bon Iver’s original song ‘Second Nature,’” says Britell. “My score runs the gamut from absurdist big band jazz to profound, deeply felt orchestral music. Many of the projects that I’ve worked on with Adam McKay are, in their own way, explorations of tone as a central topic—they’re all a unique blend of gravitas and absurdity with Don’t Look Up capturing a sense of ever-increasing astonishment at how crazy things really are.”
