New animated film “The Star” arrives on November 17.
Three weeks prior to the opening, Epic Records will release the official soundtrack.
Mariah Carey headlines the album with the film’s title track. The soundtrack also features big-name acts like Fifth Harmony, Zara Larsson, Pentatonix, and Kelsea Ballerini.
A Great Big World’s “Life Is Good” has already been released as an instant gratification track. According to Epic Records, Fifth Harmony’s “Can You See” will debut as the next instant-grat track on October 17.
