By now, we’ve all seen and drooled over the amazing animation in the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse trailers. Now, rapper Post Malone has dropped a lyric video for “Sunflower,” a collaboration with Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee written for the film’s soundtrack. If for some bizarre reason you’re still not convinced to see the film in theatres, the video, which includes the words for the song smoothly integrated into the beautiful clips from the upcoming feature, should get you in the mood for all things Spidey.
The music video starts off with Miles Morales putting a needle to a vinyl as he begins to dance and sing along to the song. It also gives us a good look at the amazing world directors Peter Ramsey, Robert Persichetti Jr., Rodney Rothman have created in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. We get to see Gwen Stacy as a student at Miles’ school.
“Post and Swae have delivered a song that’s both heroic and emotional, which is exactly what a Spider-Man story needs. It’s anthemic, but also heartfelt — the perfect soundtrack for Miles to discover the Spider-Man inside himself,” said Spring Aspers, Head of Music, Creative Affairs Worldwide for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group.
The honest truth is that, most of the time, songs that are made specifically for movies, especially superhero movies, can be a little substandard. Thankfully, that’s not the case here.
