The soundtrack for Disney’s animated family movie Big Hero 6 will feature an original song from Fall Out Boy as well as a score by Henry Jackman. According to Disney, the Fall Out Boy song “Immortals” will be heard in the film as the Big Hero 6 teams transforms into high-tech heroes.
“The idea of this kid stepping up on behalf of his brother is what inspired the song’s title ‘Immortals,'” says Patrick Stump. “Your victories aren’t exclusively yours, so the fact that all of these people are coming together to help him get to the finish line is really exciting.”
“They’re testing out their new super suits for the first time in the scene,” says Pete Wentz. “Some of it works—some of it doesn’t. You get the sense that they’re stepping into a bigger role. The story’s in the DNA of Fall Out Boy. It is an authentic story and it’s who our band is—we’ve always identified with the underdog.”
Commenting on the score, Jackman said, “It’s very important to me in a score like this when there’s a lot of emotional content, as well as heroism and jeopardy and the rest, to allow the musicians to play together. If you can put everyone in a room together, it’s great. They bounce off each other.”
The Big Hero 6 soundtrack is available now for pre-order and will be available digitally on November 4, 2014.
