Pharrell unveiled two new tracks “Runnin” and “I Surrender” featuring Lalah Hathaway today off the upcoming film Hidden Figures official soundtrack. The Grammy Award winning producer is not only a producer on the film but also a part of a great team responsible for the films score including the legendary Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight) and Benjamin Wallfisch (12 Years A Slave).
The film itself tells the UNTOLD story of historic #BlackGirlMagic revolving around a trio of brilliant African-American women Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P.Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) who were instrumental in the NASA mission that launched astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The songs perfectly capture the sound that was synonymous with the 1960’s. Listen to them both below:
