In case you haven’t already watched the trailer or seen the new cast (Quvenzhané Wallis! Cameron Diaz!), the classic Annie is getting a massive 2014 reboot in time for Christmas. And, to coincide with the big budget remake of the original 1982 film adaptation, the movie’s also getting a newly rejuvenated soundtrack with updated lyrics and melodies, all thanks to producer Greg Kurstin and the pop industry’s most in-demand songwriter, Sia.
The ever-elusive 1000 Forms Of Fear belter delivers not one, not two but three new tracks on the soundtrack including a duet with Beck. And now, we’ve got a first listen of one of those new songs: “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile.”
