Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Action Bronson, Mark Ronson Share 'Standing in the Rain'
The Suicide Squad Soundtrack is rounding out to be as star-studded as the film itself and with only three days away until both the OST and the film are released, fans have started to hear bits and pieces of the music for the film. The latest to be premiered on Apple Music Beats 1 with Zane Lowe is an unlikely collaboration with Action Bronson, Mark Ronson and The Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach teaming up on "Standing in the Rain."
The track is a soulful hip-hop cover of Oran "Juice" Jones' classic 1986 tune "The Rain." The clip is short, but fans can hear the soulful hook sung by Dan Auerbach and a new verse rapped by Action Bronson over an adapted beat put together by Mark Ronson.
In an interview with Zane Lowe after the clip was played, Ronson described how the collaboration came together. Ronson says he loves the way Ronson sings and one day in the studio they decided they should do something with it. Then Auerbach came along and the Black Keys frontman was a fan of Bronson and they used Auerbach on the hook to go along with Mr. Wonderful's verse.
The verse was just lying around for some time and the movie picked up on it and is using it for Will Smith's character, Deadshot.
This is the latest high profile collaboration to be revealed from the Suicide Squad Soundtrack. Rick Ross and Skrillex have already linked up on the high-octane EDM-hip-hop crossover "Purple Lamborghini," while Imagine Dragons, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa all combine on "Sucker For Pain."
Listen to the collaboration below and pre-order the full OST on iTunes before it comes out on Friday.
