More Transformers: Age of Extinction news: today it was announced that the film will feature an original song by the grammy award-winning pop group Imagine Dragons. The band also collaborated with Steve Jablonski, the film's composer, in the film's scoring process. The song, called "Battle Cry", is going to be used during critical scenes.
From the press release:
“We’re incredibly lucky that Dan, Wayne, Ben and Daniel were available to work with us,” says director Bay. “I remember being drawn to the emotion of ’Demons’ and ’Radioactive’ the first time I heard those songs, and I knew I wanted that same energy and heart for this movie. They’ve created a really epic, otherworldly sound for ’Battle Cry.’”
“The TRANSFORMER franchise has set the bar for cinematic innovation over the years,” says Alex Da Kid, label head at KIDinaKORNER records. “We are excited to collaborate with Michael Bay and Paramount Pictures and view this as an incredible global platform.”
The band will perform the single live at the film's international premiere in Hong Kong on June 19th. Fans can win a trip for two to Hong Kong to watch the film and performance by tweeting with #TransformersPremiere. Official rules can be found here.
