Listen to Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Theme Song
With the July 15 premiere of the new Ghostbusters movie right around the corner, RCA Records has started promoting the soundtrack in earnest with the release of Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott's updated take on the original theme song.
Their cover, which you can stream above, bears the audible imprint of Ray Parker, Jr.'s original recording, which hit No. 1 for three weeks in August of 1984. But like the new film, which offers a twist on the first Ghostbusters by assembling an all-female lineup, the 2016 "Ghostbusters" theme works within an existing framework while adding some new ingredients — like Elliott's verse.
The release of the new theme is the latest in a trickle of news and Ghostbusters soundtrack cuts RCA has issued before the film's arrival. The album's first single, Elle King's "Good Girls," arrived June 3, and earlier this month, the label announced that G-Eazy ft. Jeremih, 5 Seconds of Summer, Pentatonix, WALK THE MOON, and Wolf Alice would be among the artists included.
