A snippet of a new Florence + The Machine song called "Call me Cruella" features in the trailer for the upcoming film Cruella.

This afternoon (10 May) Florence Welch announced that the upcoming Cruella film will feature a new Florence + The Machine song titled "Call me Cruella", and the song is previewed in the latest trailer for the film starring Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil.

Welch says of the song, "Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs. And the villains often got the best numbers. So to help create and perform a song for Cruella is the fulfillment of a long held childhood dream. I’m so grateful to Nicholas Britell and Disney for allowing me so much creative freedom, and for trusting me with Cruella’s beautiful madness."

Britell adds of the song and soundtrack, "I am a massive fan of Florence’s, so it was a true joy to collaborate with her on "Call me Cruella". With both this song and the Cruella score itself, the goal was to really embrace the raw rock aesthetic of 60’s and 70’s London. We recorded everything using all vintage gear and analog tape at Abbey Road and AIR Studios in London, melding orchestral elements with electric guitars and basses, organs, keyboards, and drums."

Florence + The Machine's "Call me Cruella" song will be released 21 May alongside the full Cruella soundtrack.
