Cars 3
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Artists: Various
Label: Walt Disney Records
Release Date: 16 June 2017

Walt Disney Records release the various artists album for Cars 3. The soundtrack features 'Run That Race,' an original song written and performed by nine-time Grammy® winner Dan Auerbach that can be heard as the movie opens.

The soundtrack is quite a short one, coming in at 8 songs (28 min, 40 sec) and also features 'Ride,' an original end-credit song performed by Hollywood Records artist ZZ Ward, featuring musician Gary Clark Jr.

We're also treated to four cover songs, including two bonus tracks.*  'Kings Highway,' originally released in 1991 by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, makes a comeback courtesy of 23-year-old British singer-songwriter James Bay; Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 hit 'Glory Days' gets a modern-day makeover by Grammy®-nominated performer Andra Day, who voices Sweet Tea in the film.

*The Beatles’ classic 1965 song 'Drive My Car' is back on the road, compliments of Hollywood Records artist Jorge Blanco. 

*'Freeway of Love,' made famous in 1985 by Aretha Franklin, is performed for the soundtrack by actress Lea DeLaria, who also provides the voice of Miss Fritter.

It's a well balanced soundtrack that will please fans of the film.
