Ryan Reynolds & The Spirited Ensemble are getting the world in the festive spirit with their new song “Bringin’ Back Christmas.”
The track will feature on the soundtrack for Spirited, the upcoming highly-anticipated Apple Original Film from director Sean Anders. Both the movie and the soundtrack will be released on November 18, with the film premiering globally on Apple TV+ and the OST released by Republic Records.
In the jaunty “Bringin’ Back Christmas,” Reynolds assesses society’s materialistic ways and their effect on the holiday season. “People are one – lazy / We only care about ourselves,” he sings. “Your competition knows this so their crap flies off the shelves.”
Spirited follows the Ghost of Christmas Present (played by Will Ferrell) as he goes about his annual job of selecting one dark soul to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he picks the wrong Scrooge – Clint Briggs (Ryan Reynolds) – who turns the tables on his ghostly host until Present finds himself reexamining his own past, present, and future. For the first time, A Christmas Carol is told from the perspective of the ghosts in this hilarious musical twist on the classic Dickens tale.
As well as Reynolds, the Spirited soundtrack will feature performances from his fellow cast members, including Octavia Spencer and Will Ferrell.
