Tame Impala and Diana Ross together on the soundtrack of Minions: The rise of Gru

The release in commercial theaters of Minions: The Origin of Gru has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. That’s perhaps why the joint song by Tame Impala and Diana Ross, Turn up the sunshine, has had to wait. At first it was believed that it would be part of the album that she published in November of last year 2021, ‘Thank you’, but finally it will be the opening track and it seems that the main advance on May 20 of the soundtrack of the animated film , which will be available starting July 1. Based on versions of songs from the 1970s, the album produced by Jack Antonoff (Lorde, Taylor Swift) features Brittany Howard, St. Vincent, Brockhampton, Kali Uchis, Caroline Polachek, Thundercat, Phoebe Bridgers, Gary Clark Jr., HER, Bleachers, and RZA (also in dub credits) among others. Doing songs by Earth, Wind & Fire, Lipps Inc., Kool & the Gang, Nancy Sinatra, Steve Miller Band, The Carpenters, John Lennon, Linda Ronstadt, Sly and the Family Stone, Santana and Simon & Garfunkel. Directed by Kyle Balda, Brad Ableson and Jonathan del Val, in the film’s vocal cast we find Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Michelle Yeoh, Dolph Lundgren, Lucy Lawless, Danny Trejo, Julie Andrews, Russell Brand and Alan Arkin. And in the Spanish version, Mónica Naranjo and Florentino Fernández. It’s the 70s and Gru grows up in a residential neighborhood, in the midst of a boom in bouffant hairstyles and bell bottoms. As a die-hard fan of a notorious villainous supergroup, the Wild Six, Gru devises a plan to prove to them that he’s evil enough to work with them. Luckily, he has the help of his faithful followers, the Minions, always ready to wreak havoc. Together, Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto-a new Minion with braces on his teeth and desperate to feel accepted-will unleash his potential to build with Gru his first lair, experiment with his first weapons and carry out his first missions.
