The soundtrack album for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 is out now. The record features original songs from Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, original score by Grammy nominee Christophe Beck, and end-credit artists Panic! At The Disco, Kacey Musgraves and Weezer.
The Academy Award-winning team behind Frozen are back for Frozen 2. The new film is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee; Peter Del Vecho produces, and Lee penned the screenplay with story by Lee, Buck, Marc Smith, Anderson-Lopez and Lopez.
“The music of the Lopezes and Christophe Beck are part of the DNA of ‘Frozen’,’” said Buck. “We couldn’t imagine building Frozen 2 without them. They bring such a rich, emotional understanding of the world and characters, and through their incredible music we have been able to really deepen and expand the story.”
“The songs and score of Frozen 2 reflect the growth of the characters and the deepening of their story,” added Lee, who also serves as chief creative officer at WDAS. “The music is fun but emotional, personal yet powerful, intimate but also epic. Kristen, Bobby and Christophe have definitely outdone themselves and taken the music to brave new heights.”
Seven all-new original songs were written for Frozen 2. “From the beginning of our collaboration with Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck and Peter Del Vecho, everything we’ve created has come from big questions—what is the story that we all as artists, individually and collectively, need to tell?” said Anderson-Lopez.
“Bobby and I approach the story through the lens of which moments of our story lead to big emotions—feelings so strong our characters can no longer talk but need to sing.”
Added Lopez, “Our tradition of songwriting comes from the world of musical theater, where songs must always forward the story in a fresh and surprising way. Every song has to take a character on a journey.”
Frozen 2 is the follow-up to 2013’s Frozen, which is the highest grossing animated film of all time in worldwide box office. Frozen won an Academy Award for best animated feature film of the year, and the film’s iconic song, ‘Let It Go,’ with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, also won an Oscar for best achievement in music written for motion picture, original song.
