The iconic Diana Ross has teamed up with indie band Tame Impala to create a masterpiece that serves as the lead single on the soundtrack for the newest Minions movie.
Every film needs a memorable and catchy soundtrack and this one is no different. The song is called ‘Turn Up The Sunshine’ and it was released this week for fans to learn and sing along to by the time the film finally comes out.
The song has a ’70s vibe that runs through the whole track and Ross’s lilting voice coupled with the floaty jazz backing track makes for a fantastic joy-filled lead single.
The animated Despicable Me franchise has been a worldwide phenomenon for children and adults alike ever since the first film hit the big screen in 2010. The lovable yellow cartoon Minions have had multiple spin-offs, been featured in high-profile adverts, and have been manufactured in many forms of merchandise for fans to purchase.
This most recent addition is called Minions: The Rise of Gru and is set to come out in cinemas in July 2022. It has Steve Carell voicing a young Gru (the aspiring super-villain turned family man) and his adventures trying to join a notorious villain gang.
The release of the track kickstarts the anticipation for the long-awaited film and fans are hopeful that it will live up to the standards of its predecessors.
