A radically different, a capella version of George Michael’s hit ‘Freedom! ’90’ is one of the highlights of the forthcoming Pitch Perfect 3 soundtrack. Featuring a cappella mash-ups and medleys from the upcoming Universal Pictures’ film, plus bonus versions of seasonal classics including ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’, the soundtrack album is out now through UMe/Republic.
The next chapter in the beloved series, which hits US theaters nationwide from 22 December, Pitch Perfect 3 is the follow-up to 2015’s blockbuster hit, Pitch Perfect 2, which took the honor of highest-grossing live-action movie musical of all time in addition to a US chart-topping soundtrack album.
Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson headline the returning cast in the eagerly awaited chapter of the new movie which has been produced by Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman and Elizabeth Banks of Brownstone Productions. Pitch Perfect 3 is directed by Trish Sie (Step Up All In).
Between them, the soundtrack albums for Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 have sold more than four million copies worldwide. The hit single ‘Cups’ has been downloaded more than 4.6 million times, received 751 million streams and has been viewed more than 376 million times worldwide on Vevo.
Album producers include Julianne Jordan, Julia Michels, and Harvey Mason J., with Jordan and Michels serving as executive music producers on the film. Alana Da Fonseca (Alvin And The Chipmunks, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), serves as one of the movie’s vocal arrangers/producers, along with Ed Boyer (The Sing Off) and Deke Sharon (International Championship Of Collegiate A Cappella co-founder).
NBC’s The Voice Top 12 Artists and the stars of Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3 debuted the first-ever full-length music video in the history of The Voice during the 21 November episode, highlighting the signature styles of each vocalist. Pitch Perfect’s franchise-building song ‘Cups’ and George Michael’s ‘Freedom! ’90’, the anthem of this December’s Pitch Perfect 3, are seamlessly mashed-up in the video.
