Meghan wrote the song for the film and the song perfectly conveys the endearing and timeless essence of The Peanuts gang with a sweet signature melody. The film is in theaters everywhere November 6.
About the soundtrack, Trainor says, “I was thrilled to be offered the chance to see an early vision of The Peanuts Movie and then be inspired to write a song that captured the film’s spirit, energy, and sense of joy. It was a pleasure to work with director Steve Martino to make sure the song did right by the incredible characters that the team is bringing to the big screen. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the song!”
In addition, the Soundtrack includes Flo Rida’s “That’s What I Like” [feat. Fitz] and newly re-imagined recordings of Vince Guaraldi classics by Emmy Award-winning composer Christophe Beck [Frozen, Pitch Perfect¸ Buffy the Vampire Slayer].
