Paramount PicturesImagine Dragons has recorded a new song for the upcoming Transformers movie, Age of Extinction. The tune is strong and anthemic, just how you’d expect a tune called “Battle Cry” to sound. Besides the standalone song, Imagine Dragons also contributed original music to the film’s score which, according to a Paramount press release, “added depth to the sound of the film.”
The Dragons’ song plays over a new Transformers trailer, which also announces that the band will play live at the world premiere in Hong Kong on June 19. Fans have a shot at winning a trip for two to see the exclusive show — just tweet using #TransformersPremiere for your chance.
“We’re incredibly lucky that [Imagine Dragons was] available to work with us,” says Transformers director Michael Bay in a statement. “I remember being drawn to the emotion of ‘Demons’ and ‘Radioactive’ the first time I heard those songs, and I knew I wanted that same energy and heart for this movie. They’ve created a really epic, otherworldly sound for ‘Battle Cry.’”
