Haim shared a new song called “Feel The Thunder” Wednesday, a contribution to the soundtrack for the forthcoming animated film The Croods: A New Age.
Teaming up with producer Ariel Rechtshaid, the sisters lean heavily into a louder stadium-rock sound reminiscent of Guns ‘n’ Roses on the song. There’s also a surprise for listeners with a killer guitar solo at the end.
“He’s obsessed with them—he went and saw them on their most recent tour a bunch of times,” Danielle Haim said of Rechtshaid and Guns ‘n’ Roses to Rolling Stone. “And so I figured that that’s what we were looking for. We were like, ‘Let’s get Ariel.’ But I’d never tried to make music like that before, so it was fully like a crazy experiment.”
“Feel The Thunder” appears in The Croods: A New Age during a scene in which the fittingly named Thunder Sisters are trying to save the day. The animated children’s movie comes to theaters on Nov. 25.
