Suicide Squad looks set to be the must-watch movie of the American Summer blockbusters. Not because it’s going to be good (who knows if it will be?), but because of its stunning soundtrack. The movie has already produced the phenomenal Purple Lamborghini from Skrillex and Rick Ross as well as a haunting track from Kehlani, Gangsta exploring the torrid romance between The Joker and Harley Quinn, and the rest of the track listing of the soundtrack is studded with musical heavyweights. The latest peek into the album has come from Mark Ronson, who has previewed the track he made with Action Bronson and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys fame.
The track, called Standing In The Rain, is a reimagining of a 70s song of the same name. It’s a pretty soulful tune, but also has that classic funk that Ronson is known for. This is the third collaboration between Bronson and Ronson and the pair seem to be developing a very nice chemistry.
The preview came via Zane Lowe’s World Record radio show on Apple Radio. After playing a short clip of the song, he brought Mark Ronson on air to discuss the track and the collaboration behind it. Ronson toasted praise of both Bronson and Auerbach’s voices, stating that Dan had one of the most soulful voices in rock at the moment.
Standing In The Rain will be released in full with the rest of the Suicide Squad soundtrack this Friday, August 5, same day as the movie. The track list of the whole soundtrack is below, and if you can tear yourself away from Boys Don’t Cry for a few hours, you can go see the visuals to go with it.
