Global pop singing sensation and 2019 double Grammy nominee Dua Lipa, will co-write and perform a new single, “Swan Song,” for Twentieth Century Fox’s ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, the epic action-adventure from producers James Cameron and Jon Landau (AVATAR) and director Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY).
“From the moment we saw her video for ‘New Rules,’ we knew that Dua Lipa would be the perfect artist to do a song for ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL,” commented Producer Jon Landau. “She has the kick-ass strength, power and attitude in her performances that Alita embodies in the movie. Jim, Robert and I are thrilled to have her onboard and are confident she will make ‘Swan Song’ the perfect inspiring and empowering anthem for our film.”
Said Lipa, “I am intrigued at both Alita herself, and the amazing team of creators that came together to make this movie possible. I see a little of myself in her, in both her badass spirit and our shared haircut. Alita is all about empowerment and standing up for who you are, which are two things that resonate with me.”
The pop star also took to Twitter to announce the exciting news. “Thank you James Cameron, Jon Landau, Robert Rodriguez and 20th Century Fox for this opportunity . EVERYONE HAS TO SEE THIS MOVIE!! ⚔⛓❤⚔⛓❤ (We made a music video too and that was a lot of fun to shoot! Can’t wait for you to see) @AlitaMovie #Alita #swansong,” she wrote.
