Chris Begley from Spider-Man News has revealed yesterday that The Amazing Spider-Man 2's score by Hans Zimmer and The Magnificent Six will be released on Tuesday, April 22nd. Check out the full press release below:

NEW YORK, March 12, 2014 — Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today that the highly anticipated motion picture The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will feature “It’s On Again” by Alicia Keys featuring Kendrick Lamar, written exclusively for the film by Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, Hans Zimmer, and Kendrick Lamar produced by Pharrell Williams. The song will also be included on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, the musical companion to the film, which arrives in the U.S. on Tuesday, April 22, and will be released by Columbia Records and Madison Gate Records. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released in theaters internationally beginning April 16, 2014 and in the U.S. on May 2, 2014.

Commenting on the announcement, Marc Webb, the film’s director, said, “We were looking for just the right song to close out the film – a song that would be upbeat and exciting, but also contain a note of foreboding. Alicia’s song, ‘It’s On Again,’ is the perfect end note. For the overall score, I’m so amazed by what Hans Zimmer and the Magnificent Six were able to achieve with the music in the film. Every director wants his movie to have a unique sound, but this is beyond unique. It’s completely unlike any movie score that’s come before.”

Keys added, “I’m very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. This is the next chapter in the Spider-Man legacy and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story—and most importantly—the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a Super Hero in all of us.”

Zimmer said, “When we came together to form a band to create the music of this film, we did the opposite of what composers usually do – we wrote songs, and from the songs came the themes. We embraced a rock-and-roll ethos on this movie, and it paid off.”

Williams said, “Hans has created an iconic score theme and it was exciting to collaborate with him again on this song. When I was making the song, I knew Alicia and Kendrick had to be on it. They take the song to a whole new level.”
The film’s epic score was composed by Oscar®- and Grammy-winning composer Hans Zimmer and The Magnificent Six, which features Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr (of The Smiths, Modest Mouse), Michael Einziger (of Incubus), Junkie XL, Andrew Kawczynski, and Steve Mazzaro. The soundtrack also features new songs exclusive to the film performed by Pharrell Williams, The Neighbourhood, LIZ, and Alvin Risk. In addition, Phosphorescent’s “Song for Zula” is also featured on the soundtrack.

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Directed by Marc Webb. Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner. Screen Story by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. Based on the Marvel comic book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.


Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams have gathered a very talented group of individuals to bring what could be one of the most original music scores for a superhero film ever. Make sure to like this article if you want it to see featured in the main page and sound off in the comment session below.

Fortunately, Elfman's score for the previous Spider-man films was less than perfect, so I'm quite excited by this. -I was an Elfman fan loooong before Zimmer and any other composer, mind you; I just think he's lost the willingness to compose memorable themes, except for Alice's Theme. That was a great return to form.

He should do another supergroup thing for Batman Vs Superman.
He's gonna have a hard time differentiating his new Batman themes from his old ones. I would go back down a more Elfman-esque choral route. For this he should employ female vocalists for his modern-greek chorus. I would say Lisa Hannigan, Aimee Lee (which would further the point that this is a formal apology and replacement for Daredevil) and Miss Kittin (who has a suitably dark and haunting voice and has Catwoman connotations and she could also help out on electronic duties).

I hope it leaks before that. I WANT that music from the trailer. The Electro theme song.

This soundtrack sounds weird with all these guys together. I would preferred they kept Elfman's score.
