Music lovers and Marvel fans, the album for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has dropped! The album from Marvel Music/Hollywood Records and Interscope Records, also it’s executive produced by Sean Miyashiro and 88rising, and it’s fire.
Here’s what was the creative process was like from director of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Destin Daniel Cretton:
The music on this album is the beating heart of our film. As we were editing Shang-Chi, we were constantly inspired by the early recordings coming in from these incredible musicians. When I first spoke to Sean about the idea for this album, we knew we wanted it to stand alone as a piece of work, but also be wrapped in the themes of our movie… themes of family, legacy, pain and healing. We also just wanted to make a really great album that gives us all another reason to celebrate. I couldn’t be more excited to share this music and these artists with the world.
Here’s what Sean Miyashiro shared about the process as well:
With this album, I wanted to bring artists together to tell the stories of unconditional love and memories of growing up – the distinct warmth of mom’s hot soup or cut fruit – and how she was always there for you whether you appreciated it or not. These are songs dedicated to the first dances our parents shared together when they were young, as we continue to celebrate their love stories and everlasting youth. This album is for their sacrifice, their grit, and their endless endurance to give us the platform to be great. We wanted to make music and write songs celebrating all of that, while marrying the themes of the film of cherishing family, being fearless, and realizing your destiny.
