Pharrell Williams, alongside Columbia Records and 20th Century Fox, has released three brand new tracks featured in the new forthcoming film, Hidden Figures. Listen to “I See A Victory” featuring Kim Burrell and Pharrell Williams, “Surrender” featuring Lalah Hathaway and Pharrell Williams, and “Runnin’” featuring Pharrell Williams today. Both “I See A Victory” and “Runnin’” are original songs written and produced by Williams for the film.
Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Pharrell Williams produced the film’s soundtrack, in addition to partnering with longtime collaborator Hans Zimmer as well as Benjamin Wallfisch to compose the film’s score.
Last month, Pharrell Williams was joined by the film’s cast at the Toronto International Film Festival, where a massive block party BBQ was held featuring performances of songs featured in the film by Williams, Burrell, and Hathaway. Watch “I See A Victory” and “Runnin’” live from TIFF.
Hidden Figures: The Album will be available everywhere in December. The film opens nationwide on Christmas Day and expands to additional theaters on January 6, 2017. Hidden Figures is produced by Donna Gigliotti, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, Pharrell Williams, and Theodore Melfi, and directed by Theodore Melfi.
