It’s official, Frozen Fever is in full swing as we are quickly approaching the release of the most anticipated film in Walt Disney Animation history.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the full soundtrack to Frozen 2, a full week ahead of the film’s icily-anticipated Nov. 22 debut. After the overwhelming success of the first film’s soundtrack (which is No. 4 on the Billboard 200 albums of the decade chart), all eyes are on the movie’s seven new songs written by award-winning married songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. The deluxe-edition Frozen 2 original motion picture soundtrack also includes song outtakes, instrumentals, and pop covers (by Panic! at the Disco, Weezer, and Kacey Musgraves) as well as an epic new score by returning composer Christophe Beck.
Among the 46-track album’s highlights are two showstoppers belted through the ozone layer by Elsa (Idina Menzel), a confident power anthem for Anna (Kristen Bell), and an ‘80s-inspired jam for Jonathan Groff‘s Kristoff that marks the film’s standout surprise. The album takes a surprisingly deeper meaning than the prequel, touching on heavy topics in the sonically pleasing way that Disney is known best for. I have been listening to the album on repeat this morning and I am very impressed, in fact possibly more impressed than the first soundtrack which I was a huge fan of. It’s safe to say I will have this album on repeat for quite some time.
