The soundtrack for Minions: The Rise of Gru, govt produced by Jack Antonoff, is primarily made up of covers, rigorously chosen to bridge the hole between the movie’s viewers of toddlers and the dad and mom that accompany them. However as a substitute of creating positive that every music is distinctly completely different from the unique, Antonoff opts for the Weezer method: Make every observe as much like the supply materials as attainable, with a splash of anachronism to maintain the extra diligent listener invested. Some tracks do a greater job at this than others, however a spotlight amongst the star-studded tracklist is Thundercat‘s tackle “Fly Like An Eagle.”

The unique, written by Steve Miller Band and launched in 1976, is a dreamy, classic-rock staple that’s by some means each extremely cool and uncool, drenched in reverb and dated synth patterns. In 2022, Thundercat occupies an analogous function, however with a dedication to elevating and celebrating jazzy ’70s funk. His cowl takes the Steve Miller authentic and offers it a Bootsy Collins aptitude with keyboard riffs and wah-pedaled bass, by some means very apt for soundtracking the Minions’ vibrant yellow irreverent hijinks.
