An unprecedented soundtrack rollout developed by the unified partnership between Atlantic Records and Netflix will take place in the weeks leading up to the release of BRIGHT: THE ALBUM. Netflix and Atlantic started this idea at the beginning of the Bright rollout in July when Netflix unveiled the first Bright trailer at San Diego Comic-Con featuring snippets of unreleased tracks Darkside by Ty Dolla $ign & Future (Feat. Kiiara) and Smoke My Dope by Steve Aoki & Lil Uzi Vert, driving anticipation and chatter across both film and music fan bases. The two companies continued the campaign with the second official Bright trailer, which debuted October 25th and featured unreleased tracks Home by Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha and Danger by Migos & Marshmello, and can be viewed HERE.
Next Thursday, November 16th will see the global release of the soundtrack’s rhythmic/pop single Home by Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha. The song will ship to pop and rhythmic radio stations nationwide on November 16th and its accompanying video, directed by Bright director David Ayer will be available to stream on Netflix on November 23rd.
Next out of the gate will be Broken People by the team of Logic & Rag’n’Bone Man, arriving worldwide at DSPs and streaming services on Thursday, November 30th with an accompanying visual content piece created by the animators of Bright’s opening title sequence. Migos & Marshmello’s Danger will be released on Thursday, December 7th, joined by the premiere of an action-packed new companion visual featuring never-before-seen footage from Bright.
BRIGHT: THE ALBUM reunites director David Ayer with GRAMMY® Award-winner Kevin Weaver, Atlantic Records President, West Coast; the team first worked together as producers of Atlantic’s blockbuster SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM.
“David Ayer understands the value music can bring to a film and working alongside him once again has allowed us to create a soundtrack that fits the world of Bright in a true bespoke fashion,” said Kevin Weaver, President of Atlantic Records, West Coast. “Netflix has fully embraced these new songs by incorporating them within all marketing materials, weaving the music into the overall DNA of the Bright brand in a way that’s never been done before. I am excited to break this new ground together with them.”
