Sony Pictures Animation has announced that Metro Boomin will act as Executive Producer on the soundtrack album of new movie ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’. It’ll be one of those ‘music from and inspired by’ deals, with the producer overseeing the whole shebang.

Actually, while I may have made it sound like this is something he’s going to do, presumably the work is already done, because that soundtrack album is out on 2 Jun. Which is quite soon. If he’s yet to start work on it, it’s going to be pretty hastily thrown together. But the film is also in cinemas on 2 Jun, so it’s going to have to get done. No, I’m sure it’s already done. Absolutely certain.

“The concept for the next instalment of Miles [Morales’] story demanded a contemporary and culturally significant musical collaborator”, says Spring Aspers, President Of Music at Sony Pictures. “Metro Boomin was clearly the perfect cultural voice to sculpt the musical environment to support this amazing next chapter”.

The album will be released through Universal Music’s Republic Records. The label’s EVP Film & TV, Dana Sano, comments: “Metro Boomin is a true visionary who continues to raise the bar. For the ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ soundtrack, Metro curated and delivered with fierce passion and integrity. Republic is THRILLED and honoured to be re-teaming with the filmmakers and our amazing partners at Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group”.

The full list of artists set to appear on the soundtrack album is yet to be revealed. But I’m sure that list exists.
