Summer has arrived early in 2017, and climate change isn't the only reason why. The movie industry has decided to start bombarding the public with blockbusters a few months earlier than usual, with Logan, Kong: Skull Island, and Beauty and the Beast especially all putting up summer-like numbers at the box office. And the hits are going to keep coming, with Power Rangers arriving on March 24. The film reboots the '90s phenomenon with a hip young cast, but does the Power Rangers soundtrack also feature lots of hip new music?
While the film itself may feature some cool tracks, the official soundtrack, which goes for sale on April 21, is actually made up of the score of the film rather than pop songs. The movie's score was put together by Brian Tyler, who previously composed the music for Furious 7, Marvel films such as Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and even ESPN's "NFL Theme." In other words, Tyler is really good at making music to get people pumped up, so he seems like a no-brainer to compose the soundtrack to an action film like Power Rangers. You can check out the full track list for the movie's soundtrack below:
All of these songs are instrumental only, save one: The final track, "Give It All," which features both Santigold and Vince Staples, which you can listen to below.
Although there aren't any other vocal tracks on the official soundtrack, there are a ton that end up in the movie. A document from Lionsgate, the studio distributing the film, lists 17 pop songs that appear in the film, including tracks by familiar acts like Twenty One Pilots, Kanye West, and Tove Lo. This full list is below, and it's quite a diverse an impressive playlist, to say the least:
At the end of the day, Power Rangers is going to feature a lot of music, both in the form of the score and popular music — but it looks like only the score will be available for purchase.
