U2 Release Track For Sing 2

Earlier this week, we brought you the news that U2 had released their song “Your Music Save My Life” for this upcoming animated film Sing 2. It will feature on the film’s official soundtrack.

On the song, Bono can be heard singing,  “You know your song saved my life / I don’t sing it just so I can get by/ Won’t you hear me when I tell you darlin’/ I sing it to survive”.

Your song saved my life/ The worst and the best days of my life/ I was broken now I’m open your love keeps me alive/ It keeps me alive”.  More on this here.

Along with U2’s track and the Johansson cover, this soundtrack will also include covers of the Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face”, Coldplay’s “Sky Full Of Stars”, Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy”, along with U2’s “Where The Streets Have No Name”.
