Grammy nominee Hozier contributes the compelling single ‘Better Love’ to The Legend of Tarzan soundtrack, and the just-released music video features new scenes from the action adventure film. According to WaterTower Music, ‘Better Love’ marks the first song Hozier’s composed for a feature film. Discussing his involvement in The Legend of Tarzan, Hozier said, “I was excited about the opportunity and the challenge of writing for this film project. After viewing an early edit, I was struck by the theme of endurance, and endurance of love through such a hostile environment. I wanted the song to be an intimate reassurance as spoken from one lover to another—one that might be issued in hardship or doubt.”

The film’s soundtrack, including the score by Rupert Gregson-Williams, was released June 16, 2016. The Legend of Tarzan will open in theaters on July 1, 2016.

Harry Potter‘s David Yates directs the new film based on the classic stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The cast is led by Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood) in the title role and includes Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, Jim Broadbent and Christoph Waltz. Craig Brewer and Adam Cozad wrote the screenplay and Jerry Weintraub, David Barron, Alan Riche, and Tony Ludwig produced the film.

The Plot: It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie), at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the King of Belgium’s envoy, Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
